- Support employees and teams to do their best by investing in creativity, inclusion and well-being.
- Create a work environment that prioritizes employees and thus improves business results.
Microsoft Viva supports building a comprehensive employee experience
Microsoft Viva combines key elements of a customized employee experience on the same platform and leverages Microsoft 365 and Teams environments:
- Microsoft Viva Topics automatically identifies, processes, and organizes content and expertise across the organization, making it easy for employees to find and leverage information and content.
- Faster and more accurate search results improve information discoverability as Viva Topics leverages artificial intelligence and data from Microsoft 365, Teams and third-party service providers.
Microsoft Viva Topics is now available as an add-on to enterprise Microsoft 365 packages.
- Microsoft Viva Connections is your gateway to a modern participatory experience in Microsoft Teams, designed to engage everyone in activities and discussions, and keep all employees up to date.
- The app allows personnel to make contacts from the management level to the store, set up teams, and inspire and encourage colleagues.
- With Viva Connections, all employees in the organization can easily participate and influence with their opinions, thus strengthening the virtual sense of trust and community.
Microsoft Viva Connections is now available as a desktop version and mobile app later this year.

- The application helps users to browse, track and share a wide range of content from comprehensive entities to individual learning content.
- The tool supports employees in formal and non-formal learning exactly when it is needed, making it easier for employees to learn flexibly on the job.
- The app encourages a growth culture that helps employees reach their potential.
Microsoft Viva Learning is now available.

- For supervisors and managers, Viva Insights provides visibility into work standards that can lead to fatigue due to work outside of working hours, excessive number of meetings, or too short uninterrupted working hours.
- By prioritizing employee personal well-being and balancing productivity, organizations can foster a culture in which both employees and the organization thrive by identifying best practices for maintaining well-being at work.
Microsoft Viva Insights is available for Microsoft 365 users.
