Microsoft Viva is an all-new employee experience platform that combines communication, learning, topic knowledge, and insights into your organization.
In this series we'll give you an overview of all the different apps, along with a deeper dive into each.
What’s better than an organization that is informed and engaged?
Viva Connections is an app that can be added from the Teams Admin Center that brings your organization's intranet to the front and center of the Teams app. You can display a custom icon and title in the left navigation bar to give quick access to the home site of your intranet.
Sometimes information about certain topics in your organization can be hard to find. Viva Topics makes it easy for people to find that information, by using AI to identify, process, and organize content.
Viva Topics is another app that can be added to Microsoft Teams to make this information easy to access.
If training and learning resources are spread out across multiple tools, employees may have a hard time finding them. Viva Learning creates a central hub to give employees quick access to those resources, all within Microsoft Teams.
This new app allows you to make all your learning content from different providers available in one place, including LinkedIn Learning, Microsoft Learn, third-party content providers, Learning Management Systems, and content the company created themselves.
With work being as connected as it is today, it can sometimes still feel isolating. Viva Insights sets out to change that by using data-driven insights and recommendations to focus on productivity and wellbeing.
It’s great to see a tool that aims to find balance in a world that seems to be changing fast. It’s hard for employees to create balance in their work, and for leaders to stay connected to their team members all while being in the same room less and less.
I'm excited to see how Viva takes shape over the next year or so, it seems to be filling a gap that needs to be filled. It is creating a lot of investment into Microsoft Teams making it "the one tool an employee needs", which could be really beneficial, or risky, it is yet to be seen. This is just stepping your toe into Microsoft Viva, follow along with the blog series if you want to learn more about each part of Viva! Next up, a little more on Viva Connections.
