Meet Microsoft Viva – The Ultimate Employee Engagement Platform
As many offices shift to hybrid work, it’s important for leaders to keep their teams collaborative and connected no matter where they may be. Microsoft is working to support employees and culture through Microsoft Viva, bringing together the best parts of Microsoft Analytics and SharePoint to create a platform that helps employees strike a healthy work-life balance while also staying connected to the heartbeat of their organization.
With so many sources of information within every organization, it can be difficult to find the information that you need to succeed – especially as businesses continue to grow. Viva Topics creates a collection of content and resources from across your entire organization, connecting users with the information that they need to succeed.
Whether employees are remote or onsite, it’s more important now than ever before to ensure that your team has a dedicated space to connect and build a strong and resilient company culture. Viva Connections is designed as an engagement experience for team members, integrating the value of a SharePoint home site directly into the communications application that companies around the world already use each day. Viva Connections can also become the home of your company’s most vital insights to help minimize the time it takes employees to reach the information that they need. Outstanding expense reports, paid time off schedules, and time management tools are just a handful of the potential benefits that Viva Connections can bring across your entire company.
Giving employees the knowledge and resources that they need to succeed is key in not only their success, but also the success of the entire team. Viva Learning creates an information discovery hub, integrating continuing education directly into the core employee experience. Integrations with Microsoft 365 Training in addition to LinkedIn Learning, Coursera, Udemy, and more digital learning platforms help enable your team to gain deeper knowledge that helps expand their skills, their careers, and the value that they bring to your team.
Viva Insights helps users understand their habits, using data to provide suggestions that improve productivity while also keeping employee wellbeing as the focus. This tool helps each user build an understanding around the way that they work, recommending Focus Time to accomplish deep work when their Outlook calendar has free time available. Employees can often feel overwhelmed by the blending of their work lives and home lives, but Viva Insights provides a backbone to help create better routines and habits that can go a long way in employee satisfaction.
Now that Microsoft has shaped the world of business, the company is shifting their focus to shape the way that we interact with every area of our lives. Through Microsoft Viva, the company is shaping an employee experience that seamlessly connects us with the data and information that we need to succeed in our careers while also providing a healthy separation that encourages healthy habits that create long-term health and success.
