What is Microsoft Viva?
Microsoft Viva is an employee experience platform powered by Microsoft 365 and delivered through Microsoft Teams. It brings together communications, knowledge, learning, resources and insights to provide your business with valuable information about employee engagement, job satisfaction, corporate culture and access to business resources.
What are the benefits of Microsoft Viva?
Made up of six key modules (Insights, Goals, Learning, Topics, Connections and Engage), Microsoft Viva is a valuable tool for both employers and employees alike. It has a range of benefits that help businesses to implement long-lasting changes and achieve their ultimate goals.
Viva Insights allows employees to gain meaningful, data-driven insights into their working patterns that allow them to use their time more efficiently and improve productivity. By understanding how they work, your team will be able to avoid burnout, increase effectiveness and dedicate time to learning.
Microsoft Viva is built on top of Microsoft 365. Therefore, as most businesses are already using Microsoft 365, Microsoft Viva is extremely accessible. Your employee engagement platform will be seamlessly integrated into your existing technology suite and will therefore be more intuitive to use.
The Topics module uses AI-powered knowledge discovery assistance to automatically identify, process and organise your business’ data, content and resources. Topics makes knowledge easy to discover in the context of employees’ work, as display topic cards are automatically displayed across Microsoft 365 apps.
Strengthen company culture
By bringing together internal conversations, company resources and news, the Connections module promotes meaningful workplace communications. Employees are empowered to participate in internal communities, such as employee resource groups, helping to foster a positive workplace environment – even when operating using a hybrid working model.
Enhance employee development
As a business, your employees are your greatest investment. Microsoft Viva offers you the opportunity to support their personal and professional development through training opportunities. Viva Learning makes training extremely accessible within the flow of work by aggregating relevant content from connected learning providers, learning management systems and your own resources. Viva Learning also provides personalised, recommendations, bookmarks, assignments and prompts, helping to deliver a truly bespoke personal development experience. This will help to improve your team’s performance, increase employee satisfaction and ensure employee retention.
