The essence of being an IBMer resonates in the three values which every IBMer lives by:

IBM Equal Opportunity

IBM respects and values diversity among employees. Business activities such as hiring, promotion, and compensation of employees, are conducted without regard to race, colour, religion, gender, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, national origin, genetics, disability, age or caste.


At IBM, diversity and inclusiveness are two sides of the same coin. Here diversity bridges the workplace and the marketplace - enabling employees, clients and partners globally to come together to build a smarter planet.

Some of diversity initiatives include International Women's Day, Take Our Kids to Work Day, People with Disability (PwD) IT Camp, EX.I.T.E., Women's Leadership Conference, World Disability Day, childcare centers, and a home care project.

Mobile working

The changing nature of our work environment indicates that a single workplace model is no longer appropriate for everyone. The flexibility offered by improved technology should be seen as a way to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of our employees. At IBM, a mobile work environment allows employees the ability to enhance their effectiveness by providing tools to use at any location, be it a customer office, airport, IBM mobility workstations or home.


Flexibile work options are available to assist employees in balancing their responsibilities to work, family, education, and other personal needs. IBM gives you the flexibility to manage your work hours, so you can meet the needs of your personal life. Employees, in consultation with their Manager may agree on a special working hour schedule provided the same does not hinder the departments working.

IBM is well known in the industry for its focus on work life balance for employees. Not surprisingly for the nineteenth year in succession IBM has featured in the 'best companies' list of various magazines, including Working Mother.


IBM offers a range of personal benefits such as medical schemes, dental schemes, health screening, wellness programs, retirement and insurance program. You may even be able to include your spouse/partner and dependants under your coverage for greater peace of mind. We try to be as flexible as possible, so you get to choose what is appropriate for your personal needs.


IBM has a performance-based culture that talented people find very attractive. Employees share a sense of community and work in an environment that values intelligence and innovation. You will find yourself working with some of the brightest and the best - in a company that has complete trust in you and your capabilities.

Compensation & Benefits

The IBM compensation philosophy is to attract, retain and motivate top performing employees through competitive total compensation programs. Each year IBM participates in numerous surveys to understand how specific jobs are paid and to monitor market trends.


IBM's global recognition program, "The Best of IBM," rewards exploration, collaboration and risk-taking. IBMers are dedicated to our client's success and have a keen focus on innovation. "The Best of IBM" focuses on the behaviors that IBMers value most and provides a way to reward individuals, while inspiring and motivating others to achieve.
