You might have heard of the elections which took place in the United States. It was about to choose a new president who will direct America in a new and better world for the next four years. It was a long an exhausting race between the two candidates, Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump and now we know that Trump is the winner of the race between these two. You are right, it is very uncommon to see a political motivated post here on OneTechStop, however, we wanted to share with our readers what CEO of Microsoft, Satya Nadella has to say about the recent election.
The popular job seeking platform LinkedIn has been bought by Microsoft a while ago. Now, while you’d expect Satya to share something like this on Twitter or Facebook, he rather used his own network, LinkedIn, in order to share with us what he thinks about the election on the one hand and four issues he thinks which are rising in the United States and should be observed in the near future.
Yesterday we witnessed the democratic process in action here in the US. The results are of importance around the world, and I know that interest is shared among Microsoft employees.
We congratulate the president-elect, and look forward to working with all those elected yesterday. Our commitment to our mission and values are steadfast, and in particular fostering a diverse and inclusive culture. With that in mind and looking to the future, Brad Smith today outlined in a blog Microsoft’s thoughts and recommendations for the new Administration and Congress.
The two paragraphs above are, what Satya Nadella added to the article he published on LinkedIn. As mentioned already, the article itself observes four problems the American society is currently facing and which “[…] requires a shared responsibility among those in government, across the private sector, and by individuals themselves”.
If you are interested in the article published by Microsoft, head over to the Microsoft Blog and have a look whether you can agree with Satya Nadella or not. His congratulations are of course something you’d expect from a CEO of a big company, there doesn’t really come an opinion with it, it’s just a factual congratulation for Donald Trump, the new president of the United States of America.
Feel free to leave us a comment below with your thoughts on the article over at the Microsoft Blog and stay tuned for more Microsoft related news in the future.
