Employee Experience in the Microsoft Viva era masterclass series

Recently, Avanade and Microsoft joined forces to bring you a virtual masterclass series on employee experience. During these sessions our experts discussed how to harness Microsoft Viva to empower employees and teams to grow, succeed and work at their best. In case you missed an episode, we have now made these available for you to view on-demand.

Watch to get the expert guidance on where to focus your early initiatives or build on what you’re already doing to invest in your employee experience (EX). Now more than ever preserving and protecting the EX is a responsibility shared across the board and leadership. Microsoft Viva is an EX engine that can drive the future of work forward to ensure a seamless, consistent experience for every type of employee: frontline, knowledge or desk-based, on-site, off-site, hybrid, flexible, full time, part time or job sharing. Whatever way you work, Viva has the potential to make work life better.
