Achievers integrates with Microsoft Viva to deliver a modern employee experience


TORONTO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Achievers, a market-leading employee experience software platform, today announced Achievers for Viva Connections, an integration that allows Microsoft Teams users to take full advantage of the Achievers platform.

Microsoft Viva provides a digital employee experience platform that helps everyone in an organization connect, engage, learn, and grow, no matter how or where they work. Following the successful launch of the Achievers integration for Outlook and Teams, Achievers is building on its collaboration with Microsoft on the premise that employees should be empowered in their employee experience journey through their preferred workflows. Research from the Achievers Workforce Institute shows that more than half (55%) of employees want to recognize their colleagues in their workflow, rather than having to log into a separate platform each time.

Achievers for Viva Connections is also mobile-friendly, ensuring inclusiveness for offline and online users across the globe. The integration underscores Achievers’ commitment to continuously creating a simplified employee experience.

The latest integration with Microsoft elevates the vision of belonging to the Achievers platform for its customers. Achievers customers can shape culture and foster relationships by using Viva Connections to access a personalized destination for employees where they can find news, participate in conversations and connect with others through any device of their choice.

Integration with Achievers helps Microsoft Teams users nurture a culture of recognition to create belonging. These users can now easily discover and take quick action on personal recognitions received, trending organizational recognitions, and upcoming celebrations through a single setup with the intuitive Achievers platform. Quick access to relevant information about employee recognition and celebrations also empowers time-constrained managers to take meaningful steps to cultivate a sense of belonging.

“We pioneered social recognition and paved the way for creating great cultures by leveraging the power of recognition, and now we’re applying those lessons to focus on inclusiveness and belonging,” says Jeff Cates, CEO and President, Achievers. “That means we need to empower every employee to feel a sense of belonging by leveraging the tools and devices they prefer to use every day. It’s one of the ways we advance our mission to change the way the world works. We are especially proud of our continued partnership with Microsoft as we align with its value and mission to be deeply inclusive by empowering every person to achieve more and be their best.

“Microsoft Viva is an open, extensible platform that supports connection, insight, purpose, and growth, empowering people and teams to perform at their best. And now, this latest integration with Achievers gives employees a quick way to recognize and celebrate their colleagues and their own achievements right in the workflow,” said Sunita Khatri, senior director of product marketing at Microsoft.
