Sales Specialist - Workplace Analytics

Main Location

Open jobs

Our mission at Microsoft is to empower every person and organization on the planet to achieve more. We continue to challenge the status quo by introducing Workplace Analytics to the world. This solution reimagines the way companies and their people assess and spend their most valuable resource: time.


Based on years of research and real-world application, Workplace Analytics is Microsoft’s response to a key question of C-Suite executives: How do organizations and teams spend their time and collaborate internally and externally?   What work is worth doing and where does waste exist? How can we drive a culture of both, productivity and engagement?  


To answer these questions, Workplace Analytics leverages collaboration metadata to reveal how an organization spends time and networks internally and externally. We combine machine learning with behavioral data science to provide visibility into an unlimited set organizational metrics and identify behaviors that can lead to organizational waste, impact employee engagement and ultimately, drive to the desired outcomes.   As the solution becomes widely available and demand grows, so does our specialized Workplace Analytics team within Microsoft.


The Team:

The Modern Workplace Global Black Belt team mission is to bring new products to market and deliver high value insights while showing the world how behavioral data can be a game changer to solve complex organizational problems.
