http://news.yahoo.com/microsoft-ret...ies--list--apple-drops-to-12th-152655663.htmlWho's the most inspirational company in the world? According to a new survey sponsored by Forbes, it might be the company that gave us Windows, Clippy and Word.
Microsoft topped a Forbes list of "Most Inspiring Companies" this year, defeating last year's number one, Apple, which fell to 12th, and Google, which took the number seven spot.
“There is clearly an emphasis within Microsoft to give back,” Terry Barber, chief inspiration officer for Performance Inspired,told Forbes. That might have to do with its famously philanthropic cofounder Bill Gates: “In speaking with their employees, Bill Gates is often quoted saying, ‘we have been given much and therefore much is expected of us.’ What is impressive is that it is not just the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation worthy of this reputation. The company has donated to over 31,000 nonprofits since 1983 and raised over $1 billion through employee giving."
Yayy goo Microsoft!
