Employee wellbeing with Viva Insights

The mental and physical health of employees certainly affects the success of the entire company. The wellbeing of people contributes to their work productivity and engagement. Companies that prioritize employee care are 25 percent more profitable than their peers that don’t, according to a study by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

It is also worth paying attention to what can happen when the line between work and life is blurred. A December 2020 study found that 76 percent of U.S. employees experience burnout. In another 2020 study, nearly 70 percent of employees reported higher levels of stress, and more than half reported increased levels of anxiety. Research also shows that people with low levels of engagement and wellbeing are 48% more likely to leave their companies.

What does this data say?

It says that it is not enough for an employer to provide a comfortable open space, competitive remuneration and social package. Employee welfare must be taken care of.

Viva Insights solution is designed to cope with this task. The information in the video below is in English.

Created on the basis of Microsoft Workspace Analytics and Microsoft My Analytics, Viva Insights will help both a regular employee and a management team find a work-life balance, as well as track the overall team sentiment.

Personal Insights

Viva Insights collects the entire flow of incoming information from emails, meetings, calls and chats in one place, helping the employee keep track of requests and prioritize appointments. The application consolidates the scope of work “for tomorrow” and offers to book focus time every day.

Interesting features include the ability to indicate your mood, so that at the end of each month you can see the big picture of “bad” and “good” days.

The information for people provided by Viva Insights is completely confidential and obtained through the aggregation of Microsoft 365 data.

Insights for Managers

Managers can track information about personnel overload with appointments, insufficient time to focus, regular work outside office hours. All of these insights will inform management staff about the wellbeing of their team members.

Employees who maintain friendships with their teammates are known to experience a sense of greater involvement with the organization. With Viva Insights, managers can understand the strength of these connections and identify ways to increase team cohesion.

Extended Tools and Integrations

Microsoft Viva Insights leverages data from Microsoft Teams, Outlook and other Microsoft 365 apps and services, and can access data from the existing ecosystem of collaboration services, including Zoom, Slack, Workday, and SAP SuccessFactors. In this way, managers can see how collaboration patterns affect results, and organizations can derive exponential value from their data sources.

For Microsoft 365 users with Exchange Online, Viva Insights is already available in preview. Look for it in the More added app section in Teams.

Viva Insights will help you track what is happening inside your company and how your employees are feeling. And SMART business wishes wellbeing to you and your colleagues.
