Community Feedback on Creating an Employee Experience Platform (#EXP)

In case you missed the big collaboration-focused news out of this past week, Microsoft announced the release of Microsoft Viva, their new employee experience platform built on top of Microsoft 365 and accessed primarily through Microsoft Teams. For this month’s #CollabTalk tweetjam, we focused on the topic of “Creating an Employee Experience Platform” and had another amazing panel of experts, MVPs, and RDs join the discussion. We had some solid stats, with 293 tweets, 2 million impressions, and reaching 171k profiles. You can check out the full stats for the event at

Following the tweetjam, I was able to grab some time with fellow Office Apps & Services MVP, Heather Severino (@heatherseverino), and discuss her takeaways on the topic. Check out the interview here:


Thank you Heather for taking the time to share your thoughts in both the live event and this interview. Also thanks to AvePoint (@AvePoint) and tyGraph (@tyGraphTweets) for their sponsorship of these tweetjams, and to tyGraph for the amazing stats that they provide each month. If you are planning an event and would like to include similar stats, please contact them!

The #CollabTalk TweetJam will return in March for another community-driven discussion! I’ll share updates soon, so please follow me on Twitter or LinkedIn for the latest news. Thanks
