Talking About What Matters to Employees

Don’t Press That Button!

Understandably, you may want to record that conversation your boss or HR is about to have with you. DON’T! Not without their express (and recorded) consent. Unless you are expecting to tape record someone admitting or committing extortion, kidnapping or physical violence against a person, you will be the one on the wrong side of the law.

Here’s to Hoping that Microsoft’s CEO Satya Nadella Learned Something About Equal Pay in His First Year

Today is the one-year anniversary of Microsoft’s announcement that Satya Nadella would become the tech giant’s new Chief Executive Officer. Nadella had worked in Silicon Valley since 1992, and had been with Microsoft for 22 years when he was elevated to the position of CEO. His first year compensation amounts to about $84 million. Until October, Nadella’s tenure as Microsoft’s CEO was unremarkable. But then came his remarks at the annual Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing, the World’s largest gathering of women technologists. The head of Microsoft chose this gathering of more than 8000 attendees, mostly women, to suggest that women were better off trusting “karma” than pushing for raises. The incident raised the hackles of women inside and outside the technology world and immediately raised Nadella’s profile as well … but not in a good way.
