A short story about my first day at Axact :)
I was so excited that I’m going to join such a big company which claims that Axact Pakistan is the largest single-entity IT infrastructure of Pakistan and is one of the world’s top 10 fastest growing companies of its size but a little bit afraid about the new company, new place, new people, working environment and type of work etc.
I started my journey on 1st Oct, 2009 at 11:15 am from ALLAMA IQBAL INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT LAHORE. It was my first flight and first visit to Karachi where I required to spend 3 months at Axact Karachi office and then come back to Lahore office because my hiring was for Axact Lahore office.
My first traveling by air was good experience and I landed at JINNAH INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT KARACHI after traveling of about 75 minutes where special Axact Guest Relation Officer (GRO) was waiting for us with Axact Corporate Van to pick from airport and drop at Axact House Karachi.
First day was our orientation day; first of all we go to the Axact Training Room where some documentation process was done and then GRO took us to the Axact Cafeteria for refreshment. After that we came back to the Training Room where a video about the Axact’s Vision, Mission & Values was played and it took 2 hours at least. This video was the Virtual Tour to the Axact House Infrastructure, working environment and lifestyle.
We were eight people in total, six of Offshore Communication Department from Islamabad and two of Software Department from Lahore and me definitely one of them. After this session we took complimentary lunch and were transferred to the respective departments. In my department, my workstation was ready and given to me the credentials to access it.
After some time, a complete visit of the Axact House was arranged and GRO took us with him and we visited each and every department and observed the lifestyle which the Axact House claims. After that I came back to my workstation where the Axact branded mug given to me and the floor steward served me tea in the Axact branded cups.
In Axact, every new employee gets a welcome cake in the Axact branded packing with complimentary card to share with your family.

After that I went to the workstation of each member of my Department with Department Coordinator to introduce myslef and it is called Departmental Orientation. First day, I signed out of office at 12 am and went to the Axact Corporate Guest House to take rest.
That was my first day :)
