Responding to staff needs makes Mircosoft UK employer of choice

first_imgResponding to staff needs makes Mircosoft UK employer of choiceOn 16 Mar 2004 in Personnel Today To make a company an employer of choice, businesses have to look after staffon emotional, intellectual and technological levels, according to the head ofHR at Microsoft. Kay Winsper, speaking at the Society of Personnel Officers in GovernmentServices (Socpo) conference, said this support was the key to making Microsoftone of the world’s most popular companies to work for. She believes Microsoft has reaped huge rewards from allowing people to workflexibly and by creating an office environment that breeds creativity. The company, based in Reading, splits its budget equally between people,marketing and infrastructure. Staff perks at Microsoft include free fruit and bottled water, air that isrecycled eight times a day, and a lake where they can take a stroll to rechargetheir batteries. Every employee’s house is wired up to receive broadband transmissions sostaff can work from home, and they can also take advantage of private bankingand a health service on site. “This is not pampering, it is creating an environment to get peopleproductive,” Winsper said. “It also helps attract and retain talentthrough a compelling environment.” She added that Microsoft, which receives 1,200 job applications a month,”hardly even monitors sickness and absence anymore”. To ensure the company communicates effectively with staff, HR, notmarketing, now handles internal communications. The HR department, known as the Great Company and Governance department,created ‘u-mail’ – a service that sends weekly e-updates to workers, tellingthem what is happening in the company in the coming weeks. Winsper said the aim of the service was to ensure every employee can quicklyand concisely update colleagues and friends on the development of the company. To make sure management knows exactly what is going on, every member ofstaff has a one-hour one-to-one meeting with their managers. Winsper said the time spent is a small price to pay for knowing what isgoing on in the workplace. By Michael MillarQuotes from the confernceAlan Warner Socpo president “HR can choose between being great leaders or gophers.” Gary Younge The Guardian’s New York correspondent “People are mistaking and miss-selling diversity as a principle and nota business strategy. If diversity is to be of any use then it has to be aboutequal opportunities, not photo opportunities.” Baroness Susan Greenfield Professor of pharmacology, Oxford University “The most important part of work is status. We have to realise that[potential] is not all in our genes – the working environment may override it.Nurture can trump nature.” Kay Winsper Head of HR Microsoft UK, talking about giving all new technologyto employees first: “At Microsoft, we are eating our own dogfood to make the company aliving case study we can enjoy, and communicate to our customers fromfirst-hand experience.” Richard Olivier, Mythodrama Associates “You must align head and heart to keep fighting against the odds.Leaders must show people they are not afraid and create the power of theempowered few.” Previous Article Next Article Comments are closed.

USS Anchorage Completes URT-3

first_img View post tag: Anchorage View post tag: completes View post tag: USS USNS Salvor (ARS 52) was completing URT-4A, a towing and recovery test with NASA’s test model of the crew module when Anchorage arrived at the recovery site off the coast of Southern California. Using its crane, Salvor deployed the crew module into the open ocean. Anchorage positioned itself for recovery of the module, accounting for sea state, winds, and other environmental factors. Deploying the module from Salvor gave Anchorage an opportunity to treat this as a real recovery, because ship’s crew didn’t have to release the module into the water. During URT-2, Anchorage both deployed and recovered the module. “We have a good understanding of the challenges we have ahead of us,” said Jeremy Graeber, NASA’s Recovery Director. “We demonstrated how we would recover from a certain point of the timeline, executed the recovery, and got the module into the well deck safely. We were focusing on putting ourselves into a realistic recovery.”URT-3 is the third at-sea testing, Anchorage’s second, of the Orion crew module using a well-deck recovery method. The first testing was conducted aboard USS San Diego (LPD 22). The initial Stationary Recovery Test occurred at Naval Station Norfolk in August 2013 aboard USS Arlington (LPD 24). Expeditionary Strike Group Three is overseeing URT-3 while Helicopter Sea Combat Squadron Eight is providing air support for observation and documentation. Anchorage Sailors are conducting small boat operations using rigid-hulled inflatable boats in support of Explosive Ordnance Disposal Group One divers. Fleet Weather Center San Diego monitored and reported sea and weather conditions during the test.[mappress]Press Release, September 22, 2014; Image: US Navy Back to overview,Home naval-today USS Anchorage Completes URT-3 View post tag: News by topic Training & Education Amphibious transport dock USS Anchorage (LPD 23) arrived at Naval Base San Diego after completing the third Underway Recovery Test (URT-3) for NASA’s Orion Program, Sept. 19.center_img USS Anchorage Completes URT-3 View post tag: Navy September 22, 2014 Share this article View post tag: Naval View post tag: URT-3last_img read more
