Essential tools to create a better workplace – Microsoft at SHRM 2019

This week, Microsoft will be at the SHRM 2019 Annual Conference and Exposition to share best practices on how to unlock talent success, connect to collaborate, and drive culture change. The event theme, creating better workplaces, aligns with our focus on creating a modern workplace where people thrive.

In recent years, we’ve seen an exponential growth of digital connectivity, devices, technology, and data. And yet, our workplaces and workforces still operate according to the early 20th-century assembly line models of repetition, efficiency, and scale.

Modern workplaces are more than just exceptional places to work—they are cultures where people are inspired and empowered to innovate, create, and collaborate. Achieving this vision requires human resources to build a modern workforce, bringing people together to pursue their passions and realize their purpose. A modern workforce is made up of connected people.

Microsoft is helping HR leaders to digitally transform the employee experience to create a workplace where people can thrive. As SHRM 2019 attendees will learn, organizations can break down barriers that prevent talent success with the tools needed to connect and engage with employees—not only in the office, but all over the globe.

Microsoft is helping human resources professionals to accelerate success with three solutions showcased at SHRM 2019:
