Empowering Employee Experience with Viva Insights
Unlock the potential of your organization-large or small-with Viva Insights. Prioritize employee experience to drive organizational success.
Unlocking the full potential of your workforce begins with prioritizing employee well-being and nurturing a positive employee experience. Supporting employees’ health has become increasingly important in the wake of the pandemic, with Microsoft’s Work Trend Index highlighting that 53% of workers now prioritize their health and well-being over work. Amidst today’s increasingly dynamic and demanding work environments, businesses of all sizes need a solution for keeping an eye on the pulse of their team. Enter Viva Insights, an innovative platform that empowers employees to take control of how they work and equips leaders to stay in -touch with their employees, fostering a productive work environment, increasing collaboration, and building effective leadership.
Viva Insights helms a new era of employee experience
In today's fast-paced and demanding work environment, employees constantly juggle multiple responsibilities and roles while facing tight deadlines and a never-shrinking workload. On top of this, opportunities for employees to give feedback are slim, with 57% of businesses not actively soliciting their employees for criticism. This struggle and lack of support can strain employees' mental and physical health without proper support and attention. Sadly, without visibility into our team's well-being, organizations and leaders risk many negative short and long-term outcomes: higher turnover rates, lower morale, and eventually, decreased performance, innovation, and satisfaction. For smaller businesses and startups, these negative outcomes can be especially damaging. By leveraging Viva Insights, organizations both large and small can more effectively support work-life balance, provide stress-mitigating resources, and promote a healthier, happier work environment.

Viva Insights uses this data to create relevant actionable insights for organizations, so they can better understand their work habits and identify bottlenecks. By equipping organizations with tools to make informed data-driven decisions, they can strive to streamline processes, eliminate inefficiencies, and drive productivity and high-quality work.
