Flexible Working

At Microsoft Italy, we promote flex time and offer Work from Home  opportunities as a form of regular performance of work, thanks to information technology provisions to all employees. In order to meet employees’ needs, we provide tools that support different ways of working and helping staff to balance career and private life. In line with the goal of constant improvement of our approach, we launched a series of activities into the EMEA region. For example, part-time contracts allows employees to balance work and private life, while providing for the reintegration of a parent after an agreed period of time. This can lead to a part-time role after a period of maternity or parental leave. Job-sharing contracts provide the possibility to share duties and responsibilities of a single full-time position between two employees. Both of these policies are implemented in the entire geographical area, offering the same opportunities to all employees in compliance with local regulations. Microsoft offers all of its employees chance to  manage their time and space to suit their individual needs, while respecting the achievement of business objectives. To that end, we offer employees a chance to Work from Home, after evaluation of the compatibility with the job and with the placement organization.
