Microsoft introduces interface platform for new employees
Microsoft Corporation has announced the first employee experience platform to bring tools for employee engagement, learning knowledge discovery directly into the flow of work.
The platform known as Viva is designed to help employees learn, grow and thrive with new experiences that integrate with the productivity and collaboration capabilities in Microsoft 365 and Microsoft Teams.
Chief Executive Officer, Microsoft, Satya Nadella, said: “We have participated in the largest at-scale remote work experiment the world has seen, and it has had a dramatic impact on the employee experience.
“Every organisation will require a unified employee experience from onboarding and collaboration to continuous learning and growth. Viva brings together everything an employee needs to be successful, from day one, in a single, integrated experience directly in teams.”
The announcement comes as economic and social trends are driving durable changes in workforce engagement. Analysts put the nascent Employee Experience Platforms (EXP) category at $300 billion in annual spending. It spans what is today a fragmented market of services, infrastructure and hundreds of tools, many that go undiscovered and underutilised by employees at the companies that have invested in them.
Corporate Vice President, Microsoft 365, Jared Spataro, said as the world of work changes, the next horizon of innovation would come from a focus on creativity, engagement and wellbeing so that organisations can build a culture of resilience and ingenuity.
