Diversity and Inclusion is not just a statement on paper at Microsoft; it’s a core value, business imperative, and an investment in our people. Imagine, for a second, a working space where all the employees are of the same ethnicity, gender, educational background, and socioeconomic standing. Unfortunately, without diversity within the workplace, such companies run the risk of becoming monoculture institutions that see things from a very limited perspective. On the contrary, Microsoft creates a multifaceted mosaic of people of numerous races, cultural backgrounds, and religions, whose initial creativity, experience, and talents have boosted the company’s growth. The company creates software that helps people and businesses reach beyond their potential. The unique work environment is what propelled Microsoft Egypt to achieve the best employer in the middle east award from Hewitt Associates.
Our policy of inclusion in Egypt ensures that Microsoft is a fair and accessible company for potential and existing employees, with flexible working opportunities open for all our employees, mentoring, and a wide variety of networking groups that anyone can join. Microsoft is launching the Diversity campaign for the first time in Egypt; we would like you to share your opinion with us about the topics we will be posting on our social networks, Twitter
. In addition we would appreciate your suggestions for future topics of interest. We are working towards creating a healthier and better working environment for all generations and genders. We truly believe that Diversity and Inclusion is a better way of doing business.
