Remote and hybrid work, new technologies and an increasingly fast pace have created a new way of working where human productivity cannot be measured solely in terms of efficiency. Wellbeing, team cohesion and trust are the keys to success, and catalysts for creativity, innovation and flexibility. But this requires a whole new mindset and a new way of working for companies and employees alike. In the new order, people, individuals' fulfilment, success and well-being are at the heart of what managers do.
However, creating a great employee experience is more challenging than ever. People feel stressed, disconnected, or disengaged. Technology and solutions are needed that enhance the employee experience. The Microsoft Viva employee experience platform is the solution, putting people at the centre by combining work and support systems with integrated employee experience system.
Viva Connections: amplify culture and communications
Microsoft Viva Connections is the first step in Microsoft Viva. It provides everyone with the right access to the tools they need to be knowledgeable and informed. It is personalised and is already used by employees in applications such as Microsoft Teams. It ensures everyone is connected within the organisation by allowing easy discovery of relevant communications, resources and communities. It fosters a culture of inclusion, as communication provides an opportunity for all employees to share ideas and feedback. The vision, mission and strategic goals of the organisation are clear to employees through appropriate communication.
Viva Insights: balance productivity and wellbeing
In the fast-paced world of work, preventing employee burnout and ensuring their well-being is key to sustainable success. Microsoft Viva Insights empowers individuals, teams and organisations to achieve balance, create better work habits and improve business results with personalised, privacy-protected insights and recommendations. It provides data-driven insights into how work patterns affect well-being, productivity and results. It uses advanced tools and integrations with other data sources to perform deeper analysis, address complex challenges and respond quickly to change.
Viva Topics: harness knowledge and expertise
One of the keys to success in organisations is the ability of employees to use organisational knowledge easily and effectively. Especially when you consider that employees spend about an hour a day searching for or recreating information. Microsoft Viva Topics is an AI-powered solution that automatically organizes content and expertise across systems and teams by related topics, such as projects, products, processes and customers. Experts in the organization can share and refine knowledge through curated topic pages that are automatically generated and updated by AI. Viva Topics delivers timely, relevant topic cards in the applications that employees use every day. Viva Topics builds on and integrates with Microsoft Search.
Viva Learning: accelerate skilling and growth
74% of CEOs worldwide are concerned that a lack of essential skills in their workforce is a barrier to future growth, meanwhile, employees only have 1% of their workweek to focus on learning new skills. Microsoft Viva Learning delivers learning through Microsoft Teams, integrating world-class content from LinkedIn Learning, Microsoft Learn and third-party providers with its own content library. Viva Learning enables employees to easily discover, engage and share learning integrated with Microsoft Teams, and allows organisations to create learning processes that are tailored to their business and individual goals and then easily track them.
