Microsoft Viva

Has your business moved to a Hybrid working model, or perhaps you have staff working remotely? Microsoft Viva aims to help businesses connect with their people and improve their wellbeing in a hybrid working world.

Boost learning & wellbeing

Microsoft Viva launched back in 2021 in response to the shift in remote working, with Microsoft betting on this becoming the new norm post-pandemic, which seems to have paid off with Microsoft blogging a year on about Viva’s success. Designed to act as a portal to address the inherent complexities of remote working, Viva boosts learning, wellbeing, knowledge discovery and provides insights into work patterns to help with wellbeing.

This article will explore some of the business benefits of Microsoft Viva and discuss the features of its four core modules.

Unify employee experience

Viva combines video conferencing and learning programs with work-life balance tools to prevent employee burnout. The aim is to make employees feel more connected and help managers better understand employee work patterns and trends. Microsoft Viva builds on the power of Microsoft Teams and Microsoft 365 to unify the employee experience across four key areas — Engagement, Wellbeing, Learning and Knowledge.

Let’s start with a Product Overview – time to grab a coffee.
