With the help of the new software Viva Pulse, managers and team leads will be able to get regular, private feedback on the performance of their teams. To assist managers in identifying what is working well and where to focus, it makes use of clever templates and research-based questions. It also offers advice on what to learn and how to act to meet the needs of the team.

A new software called Viva Amplify will enable communicators and leaders to elevate their messages and effectively reach staff members wherever they are. The software unifies communication campaigns, provides writing advice to enhance message resonance, enables publication across numerous channels and distribution groups in Microsoft 365, and delivers analytics for development.

On October 3, Viva Sales, the platform’s first role-based experience app, will go broadly available.
