Microsoft & Uber finally face the facts and change their Strategies

2018 - 06 - 28

Dara Khosrowshahi, an Iranian-American and the CEO of Uber, rolled out a new set of cultural norms, including one that states, “We Do the Right Thing.” Following last year’s decision by the London regulator, he flew to the city in an effort to repair relations with Transport for London. Since then, Uber has made changes in the U.K. aimed at addressing regulators’ concerns, including reporting serious incidents to the police, and appointing three independent non-executive directors in the country—including hiring Laurel Powers-Freeling, a former senior adviser to the Bank of England, as its U.K. chairman.

The company has also made efforts to improve relationships with U.K. drivers, some of whom are involved in separate litigation to be reclassified as workers, rather than independent contractors, a standing that would entitle them to paid holidays and sick time. Last month, Uber said it would pay for sick leave and some other health-related benefits for drivers and couriers in Europe.

Here cames good news. Uber has now been awarded a licence but it has been put on probation for 15 months.

Satya Nadella, an Indian-American and the CEO of Microsoft, is the man who is transforming Microsoft. After talking and listening to employees, Nadella decided that Microsoft needed a complete cultural makeover. Over the past few years, he’s shared a number of his techniques on stage and other ways. We’ve all heard about the importance in the “new” Microsoft of having a growth mindset; of being a “learn-it-all” rather than a “know-it-all”; and of making inclusivity and diversity top priorities.

Donald Trump dug in his heels over a controversial “zero-tolerance” immigration policy that has seen thousands of children forcibly separated from their parents at the Mexican border. Donald Trump spoke amid an uproar among Democrats and Republicans as images of children being held in wire mesh cages, and toddlers crying as they were separated from their mothers, emerged from the border.

Donald Trump seems to forget about where Ivana Trump and Melania Trump come from. He also forgets that the saviors of Uber and Microsoft are not WHITE.

Hong Kong: One country, One system

When Hong Kong was returned to China in 1997, Chinese government promised in the joint declaration that Hong Kong’s economic and political systems will not be changed for 50 years. 1997年香港回歸時,中國共產黨在中英聯合聲明中,附帶了一個「50年不變」的承諾。今天,在中國共產黨之下,經濟發展前景看好,又有新聞自由、港人自治、司法獨立;是不是萬民擁戴,邁向下一個二十年? 香港人,現在都不信了。這群平常講廣東話、公司裡白領工作都用英文的,原本自視高人一等的香港朋友,現在反而覺得是二等公民了。華爾街日報這篇報導,道出了香港人今非昔比的痛 “Many Hong Kong people…
