Company picks up a gong for Recruit IT Employer of Choice at the New Zealand Hi-Tech Awards.
"We are delighted to be acknowledged as one of New Zealand's best employers," said Kevin Ackhurst, Microsoft New Zealand's Country Manager. "Over the past two years we have strived to create a company culture that makes work and life easier for our employees. We strongly believe happier and healthier people will be more productive and focused on their work, and we are committed to maintaining this culture here at Microsoft New Zealand.” Microsoft said that finalists in most categories undertook face-to-face interviews with a line up of local judges, as well as being scrutinised by a global panel of international judges. Company initiatives, such as ‘Balanced Living for Busy People’ and ‘Rebalance Week’, were commended for encouraging employees to lead healthier lives.
