Microsoft’s mission is to enable people and businesses throughout the world to realize their full potential.

In fact, we will turn down work for companies that seem to be doing the opposite.
Thank you for your support this year. Your donations have funded our first National Coordinator and we have seen a lot of expansion from this. We couldn’t do it without you.

They were very responsive and got back to us quickly if we had any questions. While some firms would spread two days of work out to four or five, Ballard Chalmers understood that was unnecessary and expensive. They were pragmatic and focused on getting the job done.

Taking care of the environment is a social responsibility topic no one can ignore. The good news is that digital transformation and moving to the cloud supports this process, reducing carbon footprint and waste. Here at Ballard Chalmers, we practice what we preach – we are fully in the cloud.
We have always been flexible with our team having work from home opportunities, cutting out the commute being a big environmental impact per individual. Now with the shift to remote work, we are making this our normal. After all, it is good for the environment and a time-saving benefit for our team.
