Viva and Glint | The Key to Transforming Employee Experience

Microsoft’s Work Index Report tells us that 41% of employees are considering leaving their current employer, making the need for a positive work environment that supports the holistic needs of employees more crucial than ever. So, it’s not surprising that Microsoft has been working hard to provide new tools to help elevate the employee experience, partnering with employee-experience software developer Glint to integrate their innovative platform into the Microsoft Viva Suite starting in July 2023.

What is Viva Glint?

Glint is an advanced analytics platform that provides valuable insights and feedback to aid organizations in understanding employee engagement and how to strengthen it. Glint’s partnership with Microsoft Viva expands its capabilities even further. By leveraging Glint, businesses can gain critical information on employee sentiment and translate that into improving leadership effectiveness and better aligning their workforce with organizational goals.

Equipping leaders to shine

Glint grants leaders many tools to excel in their role and keep a consistent finger on the pulse of their business.

On top of giving leaders a comprehensive view of sentiment data and related proactive insights, Glint also provides leaders with actionable steps to fix areas of improvement. Glint empowers leaders to level up their skillset by suggesting how to act on insights, accompanied by integrated LinkedIn Learning content like videos and articles.
