The award is based on a multi-stage survey that takes three indicators into account: overall innovativeness, product innovation and the company’s culture of innovation. Microsoft Switzerland excelled in all areas.

Catrin Hinkel, CEO of Microsoft Switzerland, is delighted with the award and emphasizes the importance of innovation for the future of Switzerland: «We are very proud of this recognition, which reflects our employees› passion for innovation and Switzerland’s positioning as the most innovative country in the world. Microsoft has been firmly anchored in Switzerland for over 30 years and we want to make a positive contribution to society and the economy with our technologies.»

In this context, innovation and the responsible use of technology are inseparable, Hinkel emphasizes: «Innovative technologies such as artificial intelligence will only be used if we can trust them. We are grateful that tens of thousands of business customers and partners place this trust in us every day.»

In recent years, Microsoft Switzerland has established itself as a pioneer in the fields of cloud computing, artificial intelligence, mixed reality and cybersecurity. The company not only offers innovative products and services, but also promotes an open and collaborative culture of innovation internally and externally.
