Software giant Microsoft has always given back. Giving has been part of the company’s culture since its beginning, and it remains an important part of its global efforts.
But why does one of the largest and most successful companies in the world place so much emphasis on giving back and helping others? According to a recent post at TechSoup, giving is the cornerstone of the company’s citizenship work, and many of their employees find it one of the most rewarding parts of the job.
Microsoft doesn’t just give money. Lots of companies do that, and for many it’s an easy thing to do. Microsoft wants to do more, and it does by donating time, software, and by creating opportunities for young people.
Many companies, and especially nonprofits, can take a page out of Microsoft’s book when looking to make an impact on the global community. Check out TechSoup’s post to learn more.
