Let’s talk about about Microsoft Viva
Consisting of multiple modules, Microsoft Viva is a digital employee experience platform that leverages the power of Microsoft 365 to deliver personalised information, insights, and communication to your people.
With traditional office-based businesses becoming increasingly digital, industries large and small are doubling down on their efforts to support the digital employee experience. And for good reason, with research suggesting that companies who prioritise employee experience are 25% more profitable and twice as innovative as their competitors who don’t.
Connections is the gateway to modern employee experience; helping people to connect from anywhere. It provides internal communicators with the ability to provide staff with a curated, personalised and company-branded experience. Connections surfaces news content, conversations (from sources like Yammer) and other relevant information right within Microsoft Teams.
Leveraging the power of SharePoint Online, Viva Connections provides a single-entry point for employee engagement and internal communications.
Viva Insights provides employees with personalised recommendations and insights on how to be more productive by working smarter, not harder. It uses data from Outlook to provide individuals with tips on how to generate healthy and productive work habits such as booking focus time and scheduling regular breaks.
With more people working remotely, Viva Insights provides individuals and managers with recommended actions and tips to reduce the likelihood of burnout and introduces new personal wellbeing experiences, which are all delivered through Microsoft Teams.8 week quick start implementation offer
With Viva, employees will be able to easily discover new training courses to keep updated with new technologies and with the one they are already using.
Viva Learning aggregates content from LinkedIn Learning, Microsoft Learn, your organisation’s own custom content, and trainings from leading content providers like Skillsoft, Coursera, Pluralsight, and edX.
Like the other Viva components, Viva Learning integrates seamlessly with Microsoft Teams, providing people with a central hub to discover, share and learn.
Viva Topics gives time back to employees by showing them the content that matters most, without the need for custom search.
Viva Topics is like Wikipedia with AI superpowers! Allowing organisations to surface relevant and contextual information (such as files, sites and pages) from the Microsoft 365 ecosystem and third-party services, like ServiceNow and Salesforce.12 week implementation offer
Viva Goals mission is to ensure everyone in the organisation is focused on their top priorities and clearly understand why their work matters through aligned goals.
By shifting focus as a team, from effort and activity to impact and outcomes, Viva Goals allows you to share progress and insights across the organisation, meaning you can focus on work that moves the business forward and stay agile at scale.
As with all Viva modules, by bringing Viva Goals into the flow of work on Teams, this will help employees reach their goals and drive meaningful results.Viva 1 day workshop
With Viva Engage, improve engagement and enhance communication in your organisation. Build communities of interest, gather ideas and feedback, and keep everyone informed, aligned, and moving forward.
Viva Engage allows employees to express themselves with storylines and stories by introducing a new way to share unique perspective at scale.
The best part is employees can join the discussion from anywhere. Viva Engage brings your communities to your fingertips – wherever you are and however you work.
With Viva Amplify empower your communication teams and leaders to elevate their message and energise their people. Viva Amplify centralises communication processes in a single space and offers writing guidance to help messages from every part of the organisation—leaders, corporate communications, and HR—resonate with employees.
Viva Amplify allows communicators to publish to multiple channels simultaneously, manage their campaigns from a central hub, and study resulting metrics to better plan future communications.
With Viva Pulse, empower managers and team leads to seek regular and confidential feedback about their team’s experience. Using smart templates, research-backed questions, and analytics, Viva Pulse enables teams to use their voice to help managers pinpoint what’s working well and where to focus.
Viva Pulse makes it easy for managers to address team needs with suggested learning and actions on relevant topics. This is complementary and additive to robust company-wide engagement tools like Glint, which will be coming to Viva in 2023.
Viva People puts people at the centre of the employee experience, by helping you to discover, manage, and curate your network to create meaningful workplace connections.
Unlock insights across people and teams by connecting with the people in your organisation who matter to your work – based on interests, team goals, shared relationships, trending content and interactions, and more.
Viva People embeds expertise and interests through the power of intelligence, by helping employees discover connections between multiple data signals. This helps to then contextualise this information and improve productivity and efficiency.
Whether you’re completely new to Viva, or ready to start your employee experience journey, we have you covered.
