Macaw signs the Microsoft Partner Pledge
When we look at our five core values: innovation, excellence, fairness, ownership, and passion, we see this strongly reflected in our partnership with Microsoft. Thanks to their cutting-edge technologies, they are a superpower of the tech world. In October 2021, it was announced Microsoft passed Apple in market cap, making it the world’s most valuable publicly-traded company. A truly massive achievement!
With the shared vision and commitment to customers, it was only natural for us to sign the recently introduced Partner Pledge by Microsoft. The Partner Pledge is a statement of intent in which Microsoft asks partners, like Macaw, to join the journey of using technology as a force for good.
By signing the pledge, we will work with Microsoft toward four goals:
- Boost digital skills: Help prepare for the challenges of the Fourth Industrial Revolution through Microsoft’s Digital Skills program.
- Build a diverse and inclusive workforce: Improve the diversity of the technology workforce.
- Deploy Artificial Intelligence (AI) in a responsible and ethical way: Ensure Artificial Intelligence is developed and implemented in responsible and ethical manner, as we embark on Microsoft’s AI for Good and Future Computed journeys.
- Help build an environmentally sustainable future: Commit to sustainability and carbon footprint reduction.
“These four goals have been on our agenda for many years, and we are excited to be part of Microsoft’s journey,” says Ronald van Es, chief people officer at Macaw. “By working on this together, the impact will only be bigger.”
