This expanded access empowered employees to discover, share, and prioritise learning resources without needing to leave the Teams platform. 
  • Value Addition: The operations director of the training provider expressed satisfaction with the implementation, highlighting the effective blend of technical expertise and business understanding. The combined use of SharePoint and Viva Learning was seen as a valuable addition to the company’s operations, enhancing productivity and fostering a culture of continuous learning.
