But while we have a history of innovation, it’s important to understand why that innovative desire runs so heavily through us.
The truth is, we take inspiration from other leaders who share a similar innovative streak, and one of our big inspirations is Satya Nadella, the CEO of Microsoft.
As only the third CEO of Microsoft, Nadella quickly refocused the company, choosing to move Microsoft away from the mobile-focused direction they had been pursuing, and redirect those efforts into products and solutions that made Microsoft’s legacy, while continuing to put heavy resource into developing new innovations. He started with helping his people find purpose.
At ezispeak, we have a similar way of thinking. We made our name on creating new benchmarks for telephone interpreting, and as we continue to move into new ways of interpreting and translation solutions, we still keep a large focus on that initial method that continues to be the bedrock of ezispeak.
Famously, Nadella introduced a new mission statement for Microsoft: to empower every person and every organization on the planet to achieve more. Similarly, at ezispeak we want to empower every Australian and New Zealander to have a voice and be heard, no matter what language they speak.
Furthermore, Nadella worked hard to make Microsoft a truly diverse and inclusive workplace, clearly a passion project for someone who was born in India and travelled to the US to further his education.
As a company that deals in language and multiculturalism, we at ezispeak are proud to have such a diverse workforce, including offering real careers for migrants that allows them to use their differences to their advantages.
Finally, Nadella engineered a cultural shift at Microsoft, with a clear emphasis on empathy, collaboration and a focus on growth.
At ezispeak, we have a very similar culture. We know that we’re better together, and there isn’t a project within ezispeak that doesn’t crossover multiple teams, and those projects are better for the collaborative and learning processes.
It’s what makes us a true team.
