Microsoft announced last year Viva, a platform for employee engagement that includes four modules: Viva Connections, Viva Topics, Viva Insights, and Viva Learning. By promoting culture, learning, knowledge, and wellbeing, each module enhances the wellbeing of employees. Microsoft have added a new module to Viva called Viva Goals.
What is Viva Goals?
Viva Goals is a management solution for setting and managing goals announced recently by Microsoft. It helps companies set goals and align teams with the strategic priorities of their business using the OKR (Objectives and Key Results) framework. The OKR framework software was developed by Ally.io, a start-up that Microsoft acquired.
The Viva Goals app will be included in Teams and allow you to track progress, assign owners to tasks, and celebrate team success.
Why is it useful?
When your company has clear objectives, all colleagues feel included, connected, and valued as part of the company. As a result, each team can align their goals with those of the rest of the organization.
By doing so, employees will feel more empowered and, ideally, will work more collaboratively. This keeps everything flexible and helps everyone achieve as much success as possible.
How to get Viva Goals
It is currently only a private preview and will be available to all Viva subscribers later in 2022.
