Viva Engage adoption strategy

Yammer has evolved into Viva Engage

Yammer has been retired. In 2023, Microsoft relaunched their enterprise social networking tool as Viva Engage.

A fresh brand comes with new opportunities to connect colleagues and breathe new life into your internal communications.

Whether Yammer was a cornerstone of your employee engagement strategy, or a digital ghost town – our strategy + change expertise can help you smooth the transition and create a thriving community with Viva Engage.

Engage everyone from anywhere

Employee engagement, communication and collaboration are more important than ever. With Viva Engage, you can deliver data-driven comms campaigns, create visible leadership and nurture cross-team connection from any location.

Create a dedicated social space

Channel sprawl and excess notifications can sink productivity in Microsoft Teams. Viva Engage sits within Teams as a one-stop social hub. Create custom communities, control notifications, and build a home for social with Viva.

Boost employee satisfaction

Employees with thriving relationships with co-workers outside of their immediate team are more fulfilled and have a better outlook on work stress than those with weaker networks. *

We use our trademarked 4E’s change management methodology to deliver a plan that’s built around your people.
