Microsoft earlier this month introduced Microsoft Viva, a brand new built-in Worker Expertise Platform (EXP) that brings collectively communications, information, studying, assets, and insights inand delivers them through Microsoft Groups. There are 4 modules: Viva Matters, Viva Insights, Viva Studying, and Viva Connections. Whereas each group might not use all 4 modules, or each facet of every module, Microsoft Viva consists of one thing for each group.

I am enthusiastic about all of the elements of Microsoft Viva. I really like how the modules are built-in, safe, people-centric, and designed to be delivered in Microsoft Groups. Among the best components is that the branding and classification of Viva as an EXP facilitates a dialog between IT, HR, and Communications. It helps every of those departments suppose extra holistically in regards to the worth they will carry collectively — and strikes the intranet dialog to give attention to worker expertise extra comprehensively.

Many organizations have achieved so for years, however I’ve seen manner too many the place this dialog doesn’t occur — primarily as a result of totally different departments nonetheless work in silos and aren’t centered on the holistic worker digital expertise. This can be a large worth proposition for Microsoft Viva as a result of it concretely demonstrates the worth of “higher collectively” inside each group — not simply with Microsoft expertise. Every component alone is nice, and collectively, they’re even higher.

Right here, I wish to give attention to why your intranet, if it may have a voice, needs to leverage the capabilities in Viva Connections.

A fantastic intranet is about creating experiences and providers that assist everybody within the group do their job.

Because the providers which can be wanted by various kinds of individuals in a corporation might differ, the very best intranets ship each providers and information focused to every kind of service client – based mostly on our position, our geography, our work group, or our pursuits. Is Viva Connections going to magically do this for you? Sadly, no. However you may make it give you the results you want if you happen to prepare by doing the next:
