What’s New in 2022?
Empowering Front-line Workers
Ever Since COVID Pandemic Hit the World, frontline workers have played a critical role in supporting the safety and mobility of our communities and economies. We were not prepared then. But now we have understood the importance of empowering and enabling front-line workers to independently act, decide and approve. So that business continuity goes on and remain unaffected.
Microsoft Viva Connections
within Microsoft Teams bridges cultural and communication gaps between leadership and the frontline workforce. In 2022, leading Microsoft Partners have rolled-out integrations in the Viva Connections app enabling workers to easily access important company resources and actions, like payroll and HR resources, in one location.
Learning & upskilling on the go
On-boarding new employees and getting them up to speed for success requires providing training and orientation with appropriate resources. Microsoft Office 365 has upgraded its Viva Learning app to streamline the workflow for assigning learning from partner solutions like SAP SuccessFactors, Cornerstone On-Demand, and Saba Cloud. New partnerships with learning providers like EdCast and OpenSesame connect workers to an extensive training content library.
Talk in Style
To make communication on the frontlines even more easier, Microsoft Office 365 has deepened its strategic partnership with Zebra Technologies, a world leader in software and hardware for frontline workers. With that being materialized, the “Walkie Talkie” app in Microsoft Teams is now officially available, with a dedicated push-to-talk button on a wide range of Zebra mobile devices and any iOS mobile device.
Book and Never Miss an Appointment
With more multi-tasking being done by most of employees, missing out on multiple overlapping items do happen. To help remove friction and maintain workplace harmony Microsoft Office 365 has updated the Bookings app in Microsoft Teams to a comprehensive view of virtual appointments in one location, taking care of real-time updates on wait times, appointments queueing, missed appointments, and staffing delays to give everyone in the enterprise 100% visibility on their availability. This is a boon for employees who are mobile and yet have to coordinate with an ecosystem of internal and external stakeholders.
Microsoft Office 365 is truly reimagining the way business collaboration happens. There are many newer functionalities that are expected to feel us connected and empowered. Let’s stay tuned for more.
