Microsoft Viva, your next-generation Employee Experience Platform
Get ready for the hybrid workplace by bringing together content, knowledge, communications, and insights in one place.
Microsoft's latest software development helps organisations navigate the complexities of transitioning to a hybrid workplace by improving your employee’s overall experience. Introducing Microsoft Viva, the first of its kind employee experience platform that leverages the familiar Teams environment in bringing together knowledge management, communications, learning and well-being. It is an aggregate of four modules: Viva Topics, Viva Connections, Viva Insights, and Viva Learning – each designed to help your people stay productive, engaged, and connected.
The wealth of knowledge and expertise you most likely already have remains underutilised or undiscovered without an efficient way to surface it. Today, you can easily build your own knowledge base with Viva Topics. Viva Topics leverages the power of artificial intelligence to connect your people with organisational knowledge by automatically highlighting relevant keywords or phrases and bringing it to a central knowledge hub. It displays search results through topic cards when you hover them across your Microsoft 365 environment, particularly in Teams or SharePoint. Think SharePoint Search on steroids. Not only does it surface various relevant content to your keywords, but it also connects you to your in-house experts.
Viva Connections serves as your internal company-wide communication gateway for your people, providing a personalised feed about the latest news, events, conversations, photos, and other resources in one place. It is designed to inform, engage, and empower your employees to strengthen your company’s culture and bolter your internal communications. Think of it as a modern-day SharePoint Intranet portal that feels like a social media app with simplified navigation, accessible on Microsoft Teams.
Organisations that advocate continued learning improve employee morale, and have higher staff productivity and job satisfaction. Bringing continued learning to your teams’ typical flow of work is now easier than ever with Viva Learning. Viva Learning provides your people access to a central learning hub experienced directly in Microsoft Teams. It consolidates training content from your own sources, LinkedIn Learning, Microsoft Learn, and other third-party training services such as Pluralsight. Team managers can assign, share, and track progress through Viva Learning.
Employee burnout has significantly risen recently and is one of the causes of declining employee engagement, increased anxiety, and mental health issues. Help your people maintain a healthy work-life balance with an application that analyses your users’ activity in your Microsoft 365 environment. Viva Insights provides you with personalised, actionable, privacy-protected recommendations to help improve your employees’ productivity and well-being. It recommends regular breaks, focused work, and learning time. It also provides both managers and leaders with insights and better visibility on what can potentially lead to burnout such as frequent meetings or after-hours work.
