Vancouver, Canada

What is Viva?

Microsoft is embarking on a new effort to address the growing needs of employees around the world. We are building a product suite designed to address the fundamental shift in how people work, build their career, and find meaning in their workplace. 

Employee engagement is undergoing a fundamental shift in response to economic, demographic, and societal changes. People want to be excited about their work, be connected to their company culture, understand how to succeed, and feel supported across a spectrum of onboarding, skilling, coaching and mentoring. Our team is dedicated to examining the employee journey and delivering software and services to make it better. 

What is Viva Glint?

Viva Glint is a premier employee engagement platform, working with over 1,000 leading companies in more than 150 countries to improve the health of organizations through real-time employee feedback. Glint blends AI technology and people science to power predictive insights that help human resources, leaders, and managers quickly make sense of engagement data, connect insight with outcomes, and take meaningful action.

Today’s employees are looking to be part of an inclusive and supportive culture, inspired by their leaders, and connected to their work and each other. Companies that excel at understanding the needs of their people, and enable their managers to respond in meaningful ways, see 2.5 times higher profit, 3 times lower attrition, and 3 times lower burnout.

The Glint product recently joined Microsoft as part of the Employee Experience (EXP) organization, which includes Viva Glint, Viva Learning, a new Viva module in development, and the Viva Horizontals teams. We run as a start-up, encouraging team members to share a sense of “founderism.” Team members engage directly with customers, iterate rapidly, and focus on solving the needs of employees around the world. Our culture is inclusive, casual, and high energy. Our team celebrates diverse backgrounds, and values passion for serving our customers. Our team has a strong sense of accountability and provides its members with opportunities for learning and career growth.
