Starting from these data and with the aim of promoting the balance of people, Microsoft Italia has decided to engage in the front line, providing training courses dedicated to the employees of a selection of companies that are joining the initiative and launching a virtual space in which it will make available for free some useful resources to promote routines that improve psychophysical, emotional and mental well-being, and to provide food for thought to sensitize organizations on how to combine productivity and attention to people.

Throughout the month of June, Microsoft will make various video content available, inviting organizations to plan moments of sharing with workers, leveraging modern collaboration and sharing platforms such as Teams to discover new daily routines together and discuss the importance of well-being in the workplace.

The initiative is divided into three pillars: Mindset, three contents on how to (re) design an organization that puts the well-being of its people at the center; Model - Coach - Care, three concrete examples of well-being-oriented models, inspired by the experiences of Microsoft managers.

From resilience to antifragility, to find one's balance by accepting a condition of constant unpredictability; What the brain tells us, an in-depth study on the value of neuro-plasticity to deal with stress and complexity; and Mindfulness again, to learn how to dedicate quality attention to the present.

"Over the last year we have seen an incredible transformation in the world of work. If on the one hand we have all been able to enjoy the benefits of remote working, from the point of view of productivity and flexibility ".

" On the other hand, we have also suffered difficulties, from remote communication and collaboration, to the management of time and respect for the boundaries between private life and work "commented Luba Manolova, Director of the Microsoft 365 Division of Microsoft Italy.
