Yes! On the computers with Windows 10, Office 2016 is preinstalled. When your computer is reinstalled with Windows 10 you will also get the newer version of Office at the same time.
If you cannot wait until your computer will be reinstalled and will get Windows 10, you can also, if and when you like, chose to upgrade your installation of Office from Office 2013 to Office 2016 via Software Center.
Please remember that Office is a large collection of applications, and that the upgrade via Software Center as a consequence may take several hours. Before you start the upgrade, make sure that you close all Office applications, including Outlook, and do not attempt to start them again before you get the message that the upgrade has been completely finalized. In addition, your computer has to be connected to the wired computer network at your workplace during the entire upgrade.
Out of time for an upgrade right now? Don't worry; you do not need to upgrade yet if do not want to. Your computer will get the new version of Office anyway when it is reinstalled with Windows 10. Until then, you can rest assured that the old version of Office can still be used as usual.
