Microsoft is planning to make changes to its human resources practices, emphasizing the issues related to employees’ discrimination and harassment.
Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella said in an internal email, that the company will make changes to its HR practices to address employees’ discrimination and harassment complaints.
The new steps will include formation of ‘Employee Advocacy Team‘ that helps assist those undergoing workplace investigation.
The new changes will also include making diversity and inclusion to be part of performance review of executives.
Since Nadella took over as CEO in 2014, the company has scaled back on hardware and has instead focused on cloud computing, a move that helped the company’s Shares reach its highest value since December 1999.
