Sponsor Insight: What’s New with Yammer?

Yammer uses communities and open conversation to power leadership engagement, corporate communications, and open knowledge sharing to drive organizational change.

With the new Yammer, we’ve introduced a reimagined experience and dozens of new capabilities that power leadership engagement, corporate communications, and communities in Microsoft 365.  Built on a decade of customer success and feedback, the new Yammer delivers a beautiful, intelligent experience across devices, and deep integration with Microsoft Teams, SharePoint and Outlook. And, as part of Microsoft 365, people can connect and share knowledge across the organization with open conversation backed by enterprise-grade privacy, security and compliance.

Communicators at every level

Yammer enables the community owners to engage their communities by sharing conversations, polls, questions, and praise as announcements – ensuring that their members will see it.  Using announcements community owners can get the message out and keep people informed and involved. Community members can communicate with the entire organization or specific communities, by sharing updates, voting on polls, posting links, and record videos.

Executives have a critical role to play in these communications and conversations too. And it’s goes beyond approving the technology. Authentic engagement from leaders help bring a level of connection and trust to conversations, beyond the hierarchies of the organization chart.

Additionally, we have customers who build communities of interest, gather ideas, and feedback, and keep everyone informed, aligned, and moving forward with help from Yammer. Our customers, like Cerner share how they achieve all of these things with Microsoft 365 and Yammer in their organization.

Our customers share knowledge, best practices, ideas & feedback across the organization in Yammer. Learn more ways to use Yammer in your organization with our Yammer Lookbook.
