General Manager of Microsoft Viva, Seth Patton, emphasized the importance of equipping employees with tools to stay inspired, productive, and connected in the digital workforce. He stressed that the integration with BetterUp provides rich, engaging content and insights that can enhance employee engagement and performance.

Given the rising economic uncertainty, companies are under immense pressure to perform. Amid shifting expectations between employees and employers, productivity, performance, and adaptability have become essential in the workplace. However, Microsoft’s recent Work Trend Index report indicated that nearly two in three people struggle with the time and energy to do their jobs. Well-being remains key to overcoming these challenges and unlocking better outcomes. The upcoming app launch from BetterUp in Microsoft Teams, due this fall, offers another avenue for users to access this transformative content.
