Record software donations
Microsoft Australia reached new heights with the Software Donation Program last financial year donating more than $42 million dollars’ worth of software to over 2,700 community organisations. This amazing outcome is a 20 percent increase on last year’s already impressive figure.
This week is National Telework Week (NTW) – a designated week to draw awareness to the benefits to both organisations and employees, in embracing flexible working and, more specifically, working from home.
Microsoft is proud to be a partner in the inaugural NTW because flexible working is part of our DNA.
At Microsoft, we uphold the belief that “work is something that you do, not a place that you go to”. We trust our people to do great work, hold them accountable for the outcomes of their roles and empower them to select the most suitable location in which to achieve this – whether that is from home, in the office or on the go
