Employee Well-being 

People are the most important part of any organization. Microsoft Viva Insights finds hidden problems that you might not see. Using Copilot can be very helpful, but it’s important to manage the change well. Viva Insights monitors workloads and stress levels to make sure the transition is smooth. It helps you pace the deployment and provide support, creating a positive environment that welcomes new technology without overwhelming employees.

Steps to Deploy Copilot Using Microsoft Viva Insights

Pilot Programme

  1. Run a Small-Scale Pilot: Start with a small group to test Copilot. This helps you gather useful information and improve your plan before a full rollout. Starting small lets you find and fix any issues quickly, making the larger deployment smoother.
  2. Collect Feedback and Measure Impact: Use Viva Insights to check productivity and satisfaction during the pilot. Feedback is very valuable – use it to improve your deployment plan. Track important metrics and get feedback from participants to understand the impact and make needed changes.

Full Deployment

  2. Continuous Monitoring and Adjustments: Keep track of Copilot’s impact after deployment using Viva Insights. Adjust your approach to get the most benefits and address any challenges. Regular reviews and adjustments ensure the tool keeps meeting your organization’s needs.
