The coronavirus crisis has drastically affected employment. According to the United Nations nearly 200 million people could end up out of work. It estimates that a total of 81% of the global workforce of 3.3 billion people have had their workplace fully or partly closed.
In early March big tech companies started asking employees to work from home.
Microsoft, with 40,000 employees in its main campus in Redmond, Washington state, was one of the first to so in the U.S.
This Friday, April 10th, our guest speaker Lucio Tinoco will talk about Microsoft’s response to COVID-19, the WFH experience and the future of work based on the data Microsoft is collecting.
He’ll also will talk about his role in support of internal and enterprise customers, the increase in demand for some of Microsoft’s offerings, especially education, conference solutions and cloud operations in the U.S. & Brazil.
