Pieter Knook, Former Senior Vice President
Mobile Communications Business
We had high hopes when we created a position in the Mobile Communications Business dedicated to furthering diversity and inclusion. Elise Jones produced the traction we were seeking, uniting the efforts of leaders, managers, HR professionals, and employees to increase diversity awareness, action, and accountability across the division. Under Elises direction, our workplace flexibility efforts significantly impacted employee retention and satisfaction. Thanks to Elises active stance across Microsoft, our progress in MCB influenced many other divisions to take similar steps. I wholeheartedly recommend Elise as a strong and effective ally on the diversity and flexibility fronts.
