Posted September 20, 2018 09:37:54Microsoft, the maker of Microsoft Office and its popular Windows software, is looking to make its mark on the global corporate world.
But how can it do so effectively without losing its core mission?
According to an internal memo, Microsoft wants to “re-focus” the company on creating a “great, global team” with a “high-quality culture.”
It wants to find ways to get people on board with its ideas without undermining the company’s core value, the memo says.
It will also be focusing on how it manages its people, especially the senior staff, by making it easier for them to share ideas and “reinvent the wheel” without creating a culture of fear.
Microsoft is the largest software maker in the world and it is still a relative newcomer in corporate America.
It has been around since the early 1980s, and it has a workforce of more than 200,000 people.
It is a highly-regarded software company, but has struggled to capture the attention of companies around the world in recent years.
It had a $19.5 billion operating loss in 2017, its lowest for a decade.
It recently announced a plan to cut about 2,000 employees by March 2021 and another 10,000 in 2018.
