Partner Pledge

At Microsoft, we are passionate about the role of powerfully transformative technology and the benefits it represents for our partners, shared customers and society as a whole. But we’re equally conscious of the impact that large-scale industrial change can bring. We believe the nations that will prosper are the ones who adopt technologies in a deep and ethical way and ensure everyone possesses the right skills and opportunity to make the most of what lies ahead.

 

If you work for one of the many Swiss-based Microsoft partner organizations, you likely share our technology vision and commitment to customers. As well as our belief in the role technology can play in addressing broader societal challenges.

 

That's why we created the Partner Pledge which focuses on the following five critical goals:

Digital Skills

Helping Switzerland to prepare for the challenges of the Fourth Industrial Revolution through Microsoft's Digital Skills program.
