The holiday season is a time for joy, celebration, and reflection. It's also a time when organizations must prioritize the wellbeing of their most valuable asset—their employees. In the spirit of fostering a harmonious workplace, our advanced employee experience platform, Viva Insights, emerges as the guiding light, offering valuable data and insights to support your team's wellbeing during the holidays and throughout the year. 

Embracing Viva Insights 

Viva Insights is a productivity tool that assists organizations with measuring and monitoring collaboration, work patterns, productivity, and crucially, employee wellbeing. In a world where hybrid work has become the norm, Viva Insights empowers managers to track productivity without compromising privacy, providing a holistic view of organizational resilience, employee engagement, and meeting culture. 

Unwrapping organizational insights 

Viva Insights provides employees with features like Focus Time and Praise to enhance their productivity. But Viva Insights also delivers significant value to managers by empowering them with data. This allows them to get a pulse on their organization and discover ways to improve its wellbeing. 

Viva Insights categorizes its data offerings into three main types—Personal Insights, Manager and Leader Insights, and Advanced Insights. Personal Insights provide private recommendations, Manager and Leader Insights offer a deeper understanding of team productivity, and Advanced Insights tackle critical questions about organizational resiliency and work culture.
