As the world responds to the outbreak of COVID-19, our thoughts are with the people affected and the medical professionals working around the clock to help those most at need. At Microsoft, we’re working to do our part by ensuring the safety of our employees, striving to protect the health and well-being of the communities in which we operate, and providing technology, tips and resources to our customers to help them do their best work while remote.
Technology can play a vital role in reducing the impact of COVID-19 on people and organizations, including helping people stay productive at work when they’re not able to be there physically. Across the global economy, we’re making sure employees can work remotely without sacrificing collaboration, productivity or security.
As countries around the world take steps to contain COVID-19, many schools and universities are moving classes online. Educators are working hard to ensure their students continue learning even when they’re not able to sit side-by-side in a classroom. Learn about innovations and strategies that can help keep everyone connected and engaged.
As public officials take necessary and unprecedented steps to protect public health, we recognize the broad economic and societal price being paid by members of our community. We’re working to do our part to address the impact of COVID-19 on the communities we live in and that we depend on for our success.
With many people, from office workers to students, now working remotely — in some cases for the first time — there will be increased usage of new technologies. We’re supporting our customers by reducing the friction of adopting new tools and helping them get the most out of them.
