Microsoft Germany—Managers Modeling Success: Work-Life Effectiveness at Microsoft Germany

Like its United States parent, Microsoft Germany’s executives know that one of the best ways to achieve this is by providing its employees with the means to effectively manage both work and life. Senior leaders throughout the organization take advantage of work-life effectiveness arrangements such as telecommuting to promote a culture of trust that prioritizes performance over face time.
