Microsoft rolls out a new experience in Insights, helping us focus on our wellbeing and productivity.
Seemingly overnight, companies across the globe were forced to change how they worked and adapt to working from home. Kitchens became workstations and the humble dining table transformed into a boardroom.
Collaboration tools became lifelines.
Balance, resilience and productivity took on new meanings. Our ability to rapidly respond, helped us stay productive, meet our customers needs and kept our businesses running. But juggling this change to working has not come without a price and the cost to people's wellbeing is not sustainable.
In order to thrive amid great change addressing organisational cultures is key. These cultures need to make it easier to do our best work, increase our productivity but also connect to our team mates and recharge.
Microsoft has invested in employee wellbeing for many years, bringing us MyAnalytics and Workplace Analytics and these insights will now we brought to Teams, aiming to aid in productivity and wellbeing.
Productivity is important, but so is wellbeing. With personal productivity insights coming in Teams for MyAnalytics users in October, wellbeing is a new focus.
