Microsoft’s Satya Nadella on Flexible Work and the Future of Work

The CEO also commented on Facebook Metaverse.



Satya Nadella, CEO of Microsoft and an Indian-born entrepreneur, recently spoke about the flexible work and modern approach to work in these days of constant change and overall development. Nadella offered a unique perspective on how companies can collaborate and innovate successfully.

Our Perspective Changed 

According to Nadella, our perspective about flexible work has changed over time. Earlier, we used to travel to our work and do our activities to satisfy our managers and bosses. Nowadays, the situation is quite different. 

We are more open to remote work and we do not spend our time traveling to our jobs. Of course, some professions cannot be done remotely, and this is why we need professionals that will be able to sacrifice their time to come to work every day.

Nadella offers his perspective on how companies can collaborate and innovate successfully.

Medical and construction workers are usually those people that need to be at the exact place to do their duties. At the same time, managers need to show up at the fabrics and companies that cannot replace the manual work with the work from home

Flexible work is also something that many people see as the freedom to do more than what is regulated. It is now critical to think about the job from different viewpoints. 

People do not think only about what, where, and how they work. They also think about why they work. This question is crucial for the overall reconnection to the real purpose of work. 

People seek meaningful connections and they want to recognize these connections in their colleagues and managers. They want a human approach and a more effective contribution to the overall working tasks. 

At the same time, people want the flexibility that will give them time to focus and reconnect with their aspirations. This type of flexible work seems to be very popular nowadays when companies are searching for dedicated workers and the shortage is very obvious. 

People see that solutions are endless and they can change their jobs very often until they find a perfect one. 

People will quit if they do not get enough flexibility at work. 

As with any other matter at work, the responsibility of the manager is huge here. People quit managers, not companies. They refuse to work with overly demanding managers, and they search for better jobs. This is where the real working experience comes to light as negative or positive. 

What the Future Brings 

Satya Nadella also speaks about the strong and weak ties within the company. As part of Microsoft tools, you can see Microsoft 365 and LinkedIn that show all of your activities in real-time values. These are strong ties that can be created with the worker. 

It is possible to come to these platforms through the cloud platform Microsoft Viva that will be available for all users who want to be part of the chat rooms or larger communication channels. 

These strong and weak ties will be improved and all of the weak ties will be stronger with time. 

Nadella also pays attention to the Metaverse that will be a leading place for meetings in the future. He says that solutions are endless and we cannot imagine the full potential of these technologies in the years to come. 

People will meet in the virtual reality universe where avatars and holograms will interact on a daily level. If you want to be part of it, you don’t even have to have goggles or any other fancy devices. It will be possible to interact from the comfort of your home. 

This is the future that will change our perspective and viewpoint in many ways.
