On the 4th February, Microsoft CEO, Satya Nadella, unveiled Microsoft Viva – an employee experience platform focused on learning, wellbeing and knowledge discovery.

Building on the power of Microsoft 365 and Teams, in particular, Viva will unify the employee experience across four key areas: engagement, wellbeing, learning and knowledge.

Satya Nadella, CEO, Microsoft 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. Everyone 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.” 

In practice, what this means is by drawing on a growing network of partners, there will be four areas which the platform will be accessible and discoverable to users: Viva Insights, Viva Connections, Viva Learning and Viva Topics.
