As the way of working has intensely changed in the past years, employees have redefined their workplace expectations and priorities. Flexible work has become a ‘must-have' employee benefit which poses new opportunities as well as new challenges for companies in the long term.
Creating the circumstances for flexible working doesn’t end with changes to work hours, work patterns or locations. With 43% of employees are somewhat or extremely likely to consider changing jobs in the coming year, enhanced employee experience could make a significant role for companies to survive.
A more meaningful employee experience enables employees to do their best work which result in greater productivity and increased employee loyalty. And wellbeing clearly plays a crucial role in it. 53% of employees are more likely to prioritize health and wellbeing over work than before the pandemic.
Building a great employee experience
The employee’s experience is defined by multiple factors including the technology they use, their physical workspace environment and their learning and development opportunities. Employees need to be constantly engaged and inspired to form and maintain their connection to the organization. Here are the key factors required to build a great employee experience:
Clarity: Employees understand and recognize their successful path and get regular feedback so they can change course and make progress toward their goals.
Growth: They are able to take on challenging work, learn new skills and diversify their experience to expand their impact.
Empowerment: Organization provides access to information, people, tools, and resources to employees so they can work effectively. Employees are trusted to make decisions, take risks, and try new approaches.
Connection: Sense of belonging manifested in collaborative and high-quality relationships with other colleagues. Employees are uniquely valued, trusted and treated with respect.
Wellbeing: The feeling of safety, security and equitability that allows employees to direct their talents, time, and energy to maintain their health and happiness.

Remote and hybrid, once unthinkable, are now commonplace in the workplace. However, this requires flexibility and agility from employees and a whole new approach to efficiency, collaboration, employee experience and well-being from companies. Microsoft's Viva employee experience platform enables organisations to respond to the changing employee experience, bringing out the best from individuals, teams and the organisation. Microsoft Viva includes four initial set of modules: Viva Connections, Viva Learning, Viva Topics, Viva Insights. Learn about these modules in the article.
In the new, changing work- and social culture, where remote, hybrid and office work have merged, a holistic approach is needed for organisations to succeed. Providing the right employee experience is the key to success for organisations, but this requires the right technology, such as Microsoft Viva employee experience platform. In this article we show how Microsoft Viva has helped companies to strengthen employee experience within the organization.
Traditional work and culture models, as previously known and used, are no longer delivering the efficiency, productivity and profitability that organisations need. With the rise of hybrid working, employee expectations have changed significantly, and organisations need to respond, firstly through an employee experience strategy and the introduction of employee experience platforms such as Microsoft Viva. There are four elements to a great employee experience: connection, insight, purpose and growth. In this article we introduce them.
In recent years, the workplace has been undergoing a rapid transformation that is radically changing the way we have known how to work. The hybrid working model has become almost the default expectation of employees, and the international team model, sitting in different parts of the world and collaborating, is becoming more common. Location matters less, but it is essential to modernise human resources processes. With Microsoft Viva's integrated employee experience platform (EXP), companies can create an inclusive culture to ensure their employees can get the most out of themselves, both individually and as a team. Find out why it's important to integrate the Employee Experience Platform (EXP) into your organisation and why you should choose Microsoft Viva.
