Besides believing in karma, Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT)’s CEO, Satya Nadella apparently just put his head down and worked as hard as he could throughout his career to eventually become the company’s CEO. In an interview with Jon Fortt on CNBC, he explained how his personal experience led him to make insensitive remarks about women equality as far as raises are concerned.
“[…] Just because I was in 22 years, as someone who came to Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) as somebody who knew nobody here and in 22 years I become CEO and so in some sense I am a product of the system that worked, but I can’t take my one example, and say that is how it is for everyone […],” remarked Nadella.
Nadella was quite throwing in words like karma and believing in the system while addressing the issue of a raise at a women’s conference. He was never going to be let off the hook that easily, but it seems that the CEO has come back with a nice apologetic comeback, and of course his own ethnicity helped him there a bit as well.
Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT)’s CEO has even been researching on the subject after he made those insensitive remarks. As CEO of one of the largest market cap countries in the world, he has found a renewed enthusiasm to address the issue of equality at a work place. Almost a week after a backlash from those remarks and he sounded quite an expert on the issue.
Nadella had been looking up different statistics with the help of Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT)’s Human Resource department to ensure that the tech giant was not guilty of any such discrimination.
“[…] let’s take the principal of equal pay for equal work and lets also talk about equal opportunity for equal work. those are two core principles for us. On the equal pay for equal work, it turns out that we have a very tight band. It’s around 0.5%. So within a 0.5% all ethnic minorities and women are within that at Microsoft […],” said Nadella.
