Microsoft’s Work Trend Index Report, “The Next Great Disruption is Hybrid Work – Are we ready?”, has spoken about the three major employee experience trends that have emerged post the COVID-19 pandemic, which will transform the future of work in 2021 and beyond –
Hybrid work is the future and is inevitable. Moreover, one of the key takeaways from the disruption caused by COVID-19 is that employee experience is always at the heart of an organization’s success. Employee well-being drives innovation, productivity, and engagement at the workplace. Therefore, managers, leaders, and individual employees need the insights to inculcate healthier work habits and build a more conducive work environment that reduces employee burnout.
This blog explores how VIVA Insights, Microsoft’s newest offering in the employee experience space, can help gather the required data to foster productivity and well-being in a hybrid workplace.
For readers new to VIVA, Microsoft’s employee experience platform comprises four modules that deliver modern employee experiences across knowledge, learning, communications, and insights within Microsoft Teams, all in the flow of an employee’s daily work.
VIVA Insights leverages MyAnalytics, Microsoft Workplace Analytics, and Exchange Online to provide data-driven, actionable insights that help manage employee well-being and productivity. Companies that prioritize people experience and holistic well-being of employees outperform their peers in earnings and stock appreciation.
For example, an individual employee receives personalized reminders to book focus time and take regular mental breaks. Managers and leaders can get granular-level insights into work patterns that indicate burnout and help minimize attrition.
While personal insights are privacy protected and visible only to the individual employee, managerial and leadership insights are protected with safety nets like de-identification, differential privacy by default, and aggregation.
Additionally, VIVA can help address unique business challenges through additional data sources and advanced insights on Glink, LinkedIn, and Headspace.
Let’s explore how VIVA Insights enables individuals, managers, and leaders to build better work habits and foster productivity and well-being in the hybrid work setup.
Besides data from Outlook, Microsoft Teams, and other Microsoft 365 apps, leaders can also access and realize exponential value from data from existing collaboration tools and services, including Slack, SAP SuccessFactors, Workday, etc.
