We are thrilled to share the news that on Thursday October 27th, 2011, Microsoft was recognized as the No. 1 Global Workplace by the prestigious Great Places to Work Institute at a ceremony held in New York City. Rankings in the survey were determined based on anonymous feedback from employees and managers from thousands of companies across six continents.
“This list recognizes global companies that have demonstrated a truly serious commitment to creating workplaces that foster trust, pride and camaraderie amongst their employees,” said Jose Tolovi, Jr., Global Chief Executive Officer of Great Place to Work. “Each and every one of the companies on this inaugural ranking should be proud of this noteworthy accomplishment. Based on this survey, we can say, without a doubt, that these 25 companies are the best workplaces in the world”
“Being recognized as the number one global workplace by the Great Places to Work Institute is an honor. Our investments in our employees and the opportunities for them have not gone unnoticed. We are particularly proud of the work people get to do every day, and the impact we have on the world around us.”
