Microsoft Teams has been making a big splash in the world of workplace communication tools. More than doubling their user base in the past year, they now have even more active users than their top competitor, Slack.
With a huge number of corporations already using Office 365, it makes sense how many of those companies would choose to implement MSTeams over something more “hip” like Slack. Now, with a solid user base, more and more employees are spending valuable work time using MSTeams. So how can employers optimize Microsoft Teams?
Microsoft Teams Apps
Microsoft Teams has the ultimate goal of being a central hub for employees. That means opening up the platform for app developers to create integrations for users to install and use while on the platform. Installing the right teams apps for your company is a key way to optimize MSTeams.
In the app store, Microsoft AppSource, you can find everything from task management apps to customer survey and live chat tools. To find what you need quickly and easily, filter by categories such as Productivity or Human Resources.
Using Microsoft Teams for Employee Recognition
The importance of employee recognition is only becoming more apparent to companies as time goes on. If your company is currently using or considering implementing Microsoft Teams, an employee recognition application is a great way to bring even more value to your team.
From improved performance to increased employee engagement, there are so many benefits to giving consistent, personalized recognition to your coworkers. With MSTeams, recognition can be made public to the rest of the channel, which increases visibility of accomplishments and encourages discretionary effort.
