Employees at data storage and cloud computing company EMC are good sports—and they demonstrate their athletic abilities at the company’s unofficial games, which include mini-golf and kickball. Hundreds of employees put on mini-golf tournaments right in the halls of the company’s offices. One afternoon this summer, the main courtyard of the company’s Headquarters was converted into a kickball field where senior leaders took on summer interns. (The executives won.) EMC also offers its employees three paid volunteer days per year and a $25 gift card on their annual EMC work anniversary to donate to a charity of their choice. This spring, the company raised $300,000 in partnership with charity:water to build clean water wells in Africa. Employees participated in “water walks,” carrying heavy cans of water to experience what many people must do to procure fresh water.
