With the overwhelming rise of remote work during the recent pandemic, employee satisfaction and productivity have become crucial for businesses. Microsoft Viva can help with this by providing a variety of apps that can be used to improve communication and collaboration within a business. Viva aims to improve the overall employee experience. We’re going to take a look at what each of the individual Viva apps currently available and what they can do for your business and how they can help improve employee productivity, and engagement.
Viva Connections is the gateway to a modern employee experience. It helps the entire organization stay engaged and informed with seamless information sharing. Viva Connections provides a single, curated, employee destination that is personalized and appears in the apps employees already use every day, like Microsoft Teams. Organizations can deploy Viva Connections with minimal effort by building on existing capabilities in Microsoft 365, like SharePoint and Yammer. Viva Connections gives everyone the tools they need to be successful.
Viva Engage is a tool that will help keep everyone informed and engaged, no matter where they are. With it, you can create, upload, and share stories, as well as follow stories from leaders and co-workers. Additionally, you can help employees learn by posting and pinning questions, upvoting replies, and marking the best answers to crowdsource solutions. You can also get detailed insights into every community, event, and conversation to measure activity and engagement and take action.
Viva Insights includes both a Microsoft Teams app and a standalone web app that help people and businesses thrive while improving productivity and well-being. Viva Insights identifies collaboration patterns that impact productivity, workforce effectiveness, and employee engagement.
Teams need to be aligned with your organization’s goals, this is what makes production friction-free. Microsoft Viva Goals is a goal-alignment solution that connects teams to your organization’s priorities and then unites them around your mission and purpose in order to drive business results. Viva Goals integrates into the employee experience, empowering teams to be their best from anywhere.
Viva Learning is a new platform that empowers employees to make learning a natural part of the day by bringing learning into the flow of work within the tools and platforms they already use. In today’s job market, continuing to learn and cultivate new skills is essential to employee productivity and engagement. Many employers provide some sort of learning platform to help their employees accomplish this, but these can be disruptive to workers’ day-to-day lives. With the release of Viva Learning, employees can easily access learning content from various sources without having to leave their work tools and platforms.
It’s always important for businesses to have a good handle on their knowledge management which is why with Viva Topics, Microsoft aims to make it easier for businesses to keep track of all their information and data. Viva Topics is an AI-powered solution that automatically organizes content and expertise across your systems and teams into related topics. This makes it easier for people to find the information they need when they need it. Topics are generated in two ways: either manually by users, or automatically by AI. Once a topic is generated, AI will update the topic and related resources as it discovers new information. This allows businesses to always have the most up-to-date information available. In addition, users can also manually update topic cards and pages to adjust the topic description or highlight new resources and connections.
