Microsoft is betting big on trust, autonomy and collaboration. For example, the company has expanded work-from-home options dramatically in recent years. Four years ago, about 40 percent of Microsoft employees in Argentina and Uruguay telecommuted. Now the figure is about 90 percent. And last year, Microsoft stopped ranking employees by performance, with the main criteria being individual accomplishments. Now Microsoft assesses individuals in three ways: their individual results and business impact; how much they contribute to the success of others; and how much their results build on the work of others. “The culture is great,” says a Microsoft employee in Argentina who works alternative hours to help care for his kids. “I don’t have to give any explanation to my managers, as long asIdeliver results.”
