How Microsoft Viva Insights can help you work smarter and happier

Do you ever feel overwhelmed by the amount of emails, meetings, calls, and chats you have to deal with every day? Do you struggle to find time for focused work, learning, and wellbeing? Do you wish you had more insights into how you and your team work, and how you can improve your productivity and performance?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, then you might want to check out Microsoft Viva Insights, a new employee experience platform that helps people and teams be their best from wherever they work. Microsoft Viva Insights provides personalized and actionable insights that help you build better work habits, based on your Microsoft 365 data. It also helps managers and leaders gain visibility into how work happens across the organization, and address the challenges of hybrid work.

Microsoft Viva Insights is part of Microsoft Viva, which also includes Viva Learning, Viva Connections, and Viva Topics. You can access Microsoft Viva Insights through the Microsoft Teams app, the web app, the Outlook add-in, or the Briefing and Digest emails. You can also integrate it with other tools such as Workplace Analytics, Glint, and Pulse.

Here are some of the features and benefits of Microsoft Viva Insights:

  • Personal insights: Get personal insights that only you can see, such as how much time you spend on emails, meetings, calls, and chats, and how well you balance your focus time, collaboration time, learning time, and wellbeing time. Get useful recommendations, such as protecting time in the day for regular breaks, focused work, and learning. You can also access mindfulness tools such as Headspace to help you relax and recharge.
  • Manager insights: Get insights into how your team works, such as their communication patterns, collaboration networks, work-life balance, and wellbeing. Get suggestions on how to support your team’s productivity and engagement, such as encouraging focus time, reducing meeting overload, fostering connections, and recognizing achievements.
  • Leader insights: Get insights into how work happens across the organization, such as the impact of hybrid work on productivity, performance, culture, and employee experience. Get data-driven guidance on how to optimize organizational effectiveness and resilience, such as aligning goals, streamlining workflows, enhancing collaboration, and promoting wellbeing.
  • Privacy by design: Microsoft Viva Insights is designed to protect employee privacy and support compliance with local regulations. It does not enable employee evaluation, tracking, profiling, or monitoring. It does not give employees access to new personally identifiable information on other coworkers. It aggregates and de-identifies data before showing it to managers and leaders.
