    Microsoft Viva Topics explained and reviewed

    In early 2021 Microsoft launched Microsoft Viva as an employee experience platform designed specifically to help businesses manage the changes brought about by hybrid working.  

    For many people, Microsoft Viva’s appearance in our daily working lives has become quite familiar, but there are still the finer points of the full Microsoft Viva offering that could do with a closer look. In this blog, I’m focusing on Viva Topics and I chatted to ClearPeople Director & Co-Founder Gabriel Karawani to provide an overview – and a review – of Viva Topics.

    Driving your Company’s Sustainability Commitment through Technology

    Consumers, industry associations and governments are increasing their calls to businesses to account for and reduce their environmental impact, and to contribute to sustainability efforts. The need for change is real and immediate, but you may well be wondering how you and your organisation can make a practical difference when it comes to challenges as vast as climate change and addressing inequity of all types. But as with every need, solutions emerge, and here’s how technology can help. 

    Using SharePoint for your Intranet: Design Examples & Ideas

    One of the most powerful tools an organization has for building culture – particularly when many employees work remotely – is an intranet. This blog explores using SharePoint Modern for your intranet.

    Remember the TV series The Office? While I imagine most of us can relate to the portrayal of a workplace where no one is very happy and the ways of working are archaic, the world of work today is fortunately quite different. The seismic shift that has had to take place as a result of the pandemic has seen rapid and widespread changes to the way we work.

    According to an Employee Well-being Report by Glint, employee happiness is higher than pre-pandemic levels. Compared to their peers at other organizations, employees at remote work-friendly organizations were 14% more likely to agree they feel safe to speak their minds, and 9% more likely to report that their leaders value different perspectives. A rather different picture to The Office thankfully.

    The key to this is culture, and one of the most powerful tools an organization has for building culture – particularly when many employees are not in the office or are frontline workers – is technology. Creating an intranet, a robust digital hub where people can find and communicate essential information, is a fundamental step towards creating an effective, engaging and productive workspace to replace The Office-era workplace.

    A successful intranet is one of those important factors for a company's success. The uptake of Microsoft 365 technology has been so widespread and rapid since the advent of Covid-19 (about 1 million companies worldwide and 70% of Fortune 500 firms use Office 365), and as ClearPeople is a leading Microsoft global partner with extensive and long-running experience with SharePoint, this blog considers the use of SharePoint Intranet in particular, although the considerations for design and implementation are applicable to any intranet software.

    Does proposal management software really help you win new business?

    Many businesses have to regularly respond to requests for proposals (RFPs) - after all, each RFP is a sales opportunity. But proposals require resources and good proposal management to be successful, and to realise that business growth potential. How well is your business equipped to produce efficient and effective proposals?

    What is proposal management – and who is responsible for it?
