Tour Microsoft Viva, the new employee experience platform that connects learning, insights, resources, and communication. Viva is a unique set of curated and AI enriched experiences built on top of and integrated with the foundational services of Microsoft 365. Join Jeremy Chapman as he shares Viva’s capabilities, the underlying tech, and your core options for enabling and configuring Microsoft Viva as a team leader or admin.

Microsoft Viva’s 4 core modules:

Viva Topics - builds a knowledge system for your organization

Viva Connections - boosts employee engagement

Viva Learning - creates a central hub to discover learning content and build new skills

Viva Insights - recommends actions to help improve productivity and wellbeing

As an employee:

Get more time to focus and recharge – no matter where you’re working from.

Connect with others, stay informed and engaged.

Accelerate learning new skills, and balance your time at work.

At an organizational level:

Boost morale and retention and the overall success of your organization.

Foster a new culture of support for employees, so even when not physically together with colleagues, they feel connected to collective goals.

Employees can easily leverage the knowledge and connections of their work community to get things done and feel invested in their career growth.
