Satya Nadella's Positive Impact on Microsoft & Its Employees


Microsoft continues to prove its staying power even when beset with challenges within and out of the organization, and after a year at its helm. Satya Nadella has steered the company into new direction and created a positive impact on its employees.

Business Insider reports that Microsoft has given products and source code away for free, moved fast to release a bunch of new products, and began to dismantle a toxic culture that developed over the past decade. Most important, Microsoft has accepted the reality that Windows no longer rules the world. Read more at:

Some of the positive changes in Microsoft happening under Nadella's leadership go back though to the time of Steve Balmer, the company's previous CEO, one analysis says. Open sourcing projects is changing attitudes inside Microsoft, with developers educating each other about the importance of building a community around their product and changing their mindset from owning projects to shepherding them. Likewise the Internet Explorer team is hiring people from Mozilla and from the 'open web' evangelism community. (…) Nadella's put his own stamp and direction on things, but he has also inherited a lot from Ballmer, as well as benefiting from just not being Ballmer. Read more at:

Although that perception of being different from the Balmer has indeed worked in his favor, but it is Nadella's special brand of leadership that has significantly created a positive influence on Microsoft employees. Yahoo Finance conducted a poll among its employees, and here is the general consensus:
  • Nadella's decision to change courses and release Office for iPad last year — which brought Microsoft a lot of positive acclaim — was a morale booster;
  • Nadella has basically given employees "permission" to do what they already knew they needed to do in order to boost Microsoft's fortunes on non-Windows platforms;
  • People walk around more freely with iPhones and Android phones now;
  • It's a lot more exciting to work at Microsoft now that Nadella is in charge;
  • Nadella is a lot more transparent and open than Ballmer was, and so people feel freer to try new things;
  • People used words like "dynamic" and "thrilled" to describe the culture.
Thus, strong, fearless leadership with a clear vision helps ensure a company's success, more so, when those at the helm believe in and support their people's ideas, unique, diverse talents and potentials.

Employment Situation Report for January 2015 Shows Job Gains


The year started off on a good start in January 2015 for job employment, with more than 1 million new jobs in a three-month stretch for the first time in nearly two decades, the LA Times reported; the hiring surge has spurred the best wage gains in more than six years. The 257,000 net new jobs that employers added last month were spread across high- and low-paying industries, the Labor Department said Friday in a report that economists described as overwhelmingly positive. Read more here:

“These are pretty amazing numbers,” said Nariman Behravesh, chief economist at IHS Inc. in Lexington, Massachusetts, and the top forecaster of payrolls over the last two years, according to data compiled by Bloomberg. “The January number is strong, but then you’ve got sizzling November and December numbers too. And then you’ve got the wage gains.” More hiring, pay increases and the longest workweek of the expansion are boosting earnings just as inflation ebbs, which will combine to lift household buying power. Read more here:

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, in January, health care employment increased by 38,000. Job gains occurred in offices of physicians (+13,000), hospitals (+10,000), and nursing and residential care facilities (+7,000). Health care added an average of 26,000 jobs per month in 2014. Professional and technical services added 33,000 jobs in January, including increases in computer systems design (+8,000) and architectural and engineering services (+8,000). 
  
The Professional and technical services industry has also been noted as having the best jobs for 2015, and so with healthcare jobs. However, while workers in the Professional and technical services industry, such as those in accountant jobs, are more likely to get a raise in their pay, the healthcare and social services industry is among the worst industries for raises this year.
