Microsoft Viva & Employee Experience

Microsoft Viva is an integrated employee experience platform built within Microsoft 365. For organisations using other M365 tools, like SharePoint and Teams, Microsoft Viva is the next natural step in the EX journey.

Microsoft Viva combines communications, knowledge and learning, and helps organisations deliver first-class employee experiences with the tools they already know. Rather than adding another channel to the mix, Microsoft Viva brings your existing channels together and makes them available in Teams.

The result? A centralised, holistic employee experience that’s embedded in the natural flow of work. And your organisation will reap the rewards in productivity, engagement and retention.

But, with so many apps in the Viva suite, knowing how and where to start can seem overwhelming. And how do you plan your approach to Viva within an EX framework?

That’s where this guide comes in.

Taking you through each of Josh Bersin’s six pillars of employee experience, this guide provides practical examples of how to use each of the Microsoft Viva apps to really make a difference.

Whether you’re at the start of your EX journey or ready to look at the entire EX lifecycle, this guide gives you the building blocks to get started.
