The Great Place to Work Institute today announced that Microsoft Corp. has won the Best Large Workplace in Europe 2010 award for the third year in a row. Announced at a gala ceremony at the Great Place to Work European Conference 2010 in Madrid, the awards are the culmination of its annual survey and report on the 100 Best Workplaces in Europe.

The institute honours companies that make significant investments in people to provide exceptional working environments, practices, benefits and recognition. The Best Workplaces lists are the world’s largest annual study of workplaces. More than 1,300 companies in 17 European countries participated in this year’s evaluation process.

"We are pleased to have been awarded the Best Workplace in Europe award from the Great Place to Work Institute for the third year running. Investing in people and creating a work environment that utilises the latest technology has enabled staff to transform the way they work and interact with colleagues, delivering a strong work-life balance and a highly motivated and empowered team,” said Jean-Philippe Courtois, president, Microsoft International, senior vice president. “This past year has been challenging for businesses and employees in all industries, and Microsoft is no different.
