Learn more about the tools you can use to drive employee engagement, open communications, and teamwork in the modern workplace.


Connect and engage people across your organization

Communicate openly to build transparency, create stronger communities by sharing best practices, and crowdsource ideas to drive initiatives forward.

Yammer helps you improve engagement with everyone in your organization. Enhance communication to build a culture of transparency, keeping everyone from leadership to Firstline Workers informed, aligned, and moving forward. Build communities of interest to bring people together around shared topics, interests, or areas of practice. Gather ideas and feedback from across your network of colleagues to build on the work of others and achieve better outcomes.

Microsoft Teams

The hub for teamwork

Communicate though threaded and persistent chat and keep everyone in the know. Initiate a private or group chat, share files or co-author content.

You can customize and extend your workspace with apps to bring the tools and services you use every day into one place. Office 365 apps are built in for easy access to SharePoint, OneNote, PowerBI, Planner and more. You can make, receive, and transfer calls using phone, PC, Mac, and mobile. And when you need to get together, Microsoft Teams is designed for all your meeting needs, from team meetings to live streaming, dialing into a conference call, or hosting a meeting with a Skype Room System.


The mobile, intelligent intranet

Inform and engage your employees with rich news, beautiful sites and dynamic pages that integrate content and conversation from across Office 365.

SharePoint empowers you to connect the workplace with a modern, natively-mobile intranet. Drive organizational efficiency by sharing common resources and applications on portals. Streamline business processes. Find content and expertise with personalized, intelligent search across Office 365. And stay up-to-date with relevant news and content that comes to you, at your desk or on the go.

Microsoft Stream

Communicate and inspire with intelligent video

Create, discover, and share videos within a small team, or across an entire organization, all inside a securely managed environment.

Take a modern approach to employee engagement by leveraging video for training, communications and sharing information with Stream.  Find what you need fast with smart search tools: Intelligence features provide more ways to find and interact with your videos—so everyone can access relevant content quickly and easily. Collaborate more easily in apps you already know: Intuitive video sharing—in a video portal and Office 365 apps including Teams, Yammer and SharePoint—makes it easier for everyone to engage and collaborate productively. Make your communications more compelling: Reach your entire company and keep everyone connected, bringing even remote teams together with the personalized power of video.
