At Microsoft, our mission is to empower every person and every organisation on the planet to achieve more. Today, as leaders navigate the biggest shift to how we work in a generation, Microsoft is committed to ensuring no individual or organisation gets left behind.
To compete in today’s economy, organisations need to attract and retain the best talent. What began as a mass shift to working from home 18 months ago has become a catalyst for employees to re-examine their relationship with work – not only how, when, and where but why they work.
In this context, leaders face a new imperative: bring workers together – from the virtual boardroom to the factory floor – through a culture grounded in flexibility, trust, and a shared sense of belonging. Otherwise, leaders risk losing their most valued asset, their people. For organisations and their leaders, this is an opportunity to create new frameworks and workplace norms that deliver greater fulfilment for employees and better business outcomes for employers.
As the leader in enabling businesses to embrace hybrid work and improve employee experience, Microsoft is pleased to be the Principal Partner of TEDxSydney, helping Australian and New Zealand leaders explore what’s POSSIBLE in this new world of work and employees to determine where they belong.
