What is the PixSense Must-Clone Award?

cloning_pixsenseWhat is going on here? Why is Hasan photocopying his face/head while Faraz and other colleagues look on?

Well, the story is that PixSense has instituted a monthly Employee Peer Recognition Award this month to recognize the contributions of the employee who exemplifies the best of PixSense and exhibits the work ethic that PixSense most desires to “clone”.

Since they haven’t fully succeeded in building a 3D cloning machine, they have decided, for the moment, to use the currently available state of the art technology – i.e. a photocopying machine!

This month’s recipient is Hasan Abid, one of the Technology Leads in their QA team, for his unrelenting dedication and support in getting one of the marquee European operators up and running before the Christmas holiday break.

The award was presented by PixSense’s department heads, Ahmed Ayub – Project Management & Ops, Syed Muhammed Shoaib – QA, Mirza Aleem Baig – Mobile Engineering, & Mustafa Sultan – Server Engineering.

Talking about the Award, FS Nooruddin, PixSense’s Vice President  of Engineering, said “Our team is made up of some of the best and brightest minds in Pakistan and we drive our team really hard. The PixSense Must-Clone award is one that means a lot because it’s a peer-recognition award that recognizes that, even amongst our already stellar team, some people’s contributions and performance stands out above and beyond the rest. We’re delighted to institute this recognition program and thrilled with the performance of our first recipient, Hasan Abid.”

I too can think of a few people I would like to clone. It would make life a lot easier. Good initiative guys! I guess it is one solution to the continuing struggle to find the best and the brightest, and to retain them. Keep us in the loop regarding future winners. We would love to project them. There is so much talent in this country. Let’s talk about it.

    I am honored to be the first recipient of ‘Must be Clone’ award. I cannot even begin to express how humbled and utterly delighted I was at the prospect of been chosen for ‘Must be Clone’ alongside other equally deserving employees in for the running. I am overjoyed, and will push myself further to try retaining, and even reclaiming it in times to come.

    I never thought a pat on the back and recognition would make me actually look so much forward to spending even more time here at PixSense, which, of course, I already do. Let’s just say that the award has made all the days, nights and holidays spent here in the office a worthwhile journey.

    Many Thanks!

    About cloning the best and brightest: Francis Ford Coppola (the acclaimed film director) prefers a brand of hand-rolled cigars called ‘Carmine Thrifty’s’ (named for his father).

    The packet (five for US$5: for cigars, that is not not bad) has a legend on the side which reads: “Steal from the Best”.
