We want to empower every person and organization on the planet to achieve more. That’s what inspires us, drives our work and pushes us to challenge the status quo every day. A result that will come about only if we live our culture.
We fundamentally believe that we need a culture founded in a growth mindset.
It’s our belief that everyone can grow and develop; that potential is nurtured, not pre-determined; and that anyone can change their mindset. We must constantly learn and be insatiably curious. Be willing to lean in to uncertainty, take risks and move quickly when we make mistakes, recognizing failure happens along the way to mastery. And be open to the ideas of others, where the success of others does not diminish our own.
We are passionate about helping our customers achieve more, and that means we learn about our customers and their businesses with a beginner’s mind and then bring solutions that meet their needs. We are insatiable in our desire to learn from the outside and bring it into Microsoft, while still innovating to surprise and delight our users.
The world is diverse. We will better serve everyone on the planet by representing everyone. We will be open to learn our own biases and changing our behaviors, so we can tap into the power of everyone at Microsoft. We don’t just value differences, we seek them out, we invite them in. And as a result, our ideas are better, our products are better and our customers are better served.
We are a family of individuals united by a single, shared mission. It’s our ability to work together that make our dreams believable and, ultimately, achievable. We build on the ideas of others and collaborate across boundaries to bring the best of Microsoft to our customers as one. We are proud to be part of team Microsoft.
Our employees have access to the latest technology and tools, the power to build on the company’s far-reaching momentum and the drive to change the world. We can make a difference. Together, we can help billions of people around the globe use digital technology to achieve amazing things.
