With the launch of Microsoft Viva as an Employee Experience Platform (EXP), Microsoft has acknowledged the importance of having a digital office space where employees can interact. This environment is invaluable for businesses, as it creates a network of collaborative support, while also fostering a workplace culture that is integrated throughout all levels of an organization.
When the world was forced to adapt to the pandemic and migrate office operations to digital spaces, the world was at risk of losing the important benefits of a unified workspace. Microsoft Viva addresses this challenge, providing a digital re-creation of the internal dynamics and processes of a physical office space.
In a blog post that coincided with Viva’s launch, leaders at Microsoft stated “the case for EXP.” This blog post challenges the traditional boundaries that confine an office to a physical “space,” highlighting how the development of EXPs can offer the same benefits of traditional workspaces and, furthermore, provide additional benefits only accessible on a digital platform.
This article highlights the benefits of three key features of Microsoft Viva that increase productivity across all levels of an organization while also enriching the employee experience.
The release of Microsoft Viva in February 2021 represented Microsoft’s greater efforts to create an EXP to ensure employees remain connected in an increasingly online world. Microsoft Viva’s EXP offers businesses a central place for employees to communicate and collaborate, providing new services to Microsoft users, and integrating interoperability with existing Microsoft 365 services, such as Microsoft Teams and SharePoint.
Viva Connections is the central core of Viva’s EXP, a personalized hub of information and connection. In Viva Connections, employees can access news, conversations, internal communications, and critical tools to make sure they have both the collaborative support and resources they need to succeed. Viva Connections ensures your organization fosters a workplace culture that involves all employees. Visiting this digital space is just like walking into a physical office space, while simultaneously providing the benefit of connecting and collaborating with colleagues around the world.
Viva Insights provides data-driven evaluations, solutions, and processes to help organizations keep track of critical information, workflows, and databases with optimized accessibility, management, and security.
Viva Learning provides a time-effective method of making sure all information gaps can be filled in one space. If an employee needs a piece of critical information, they don’t have to connect with another employee to access this information—they can simply use the Viva Learning feature to make sure they have the information they need to succeed.
