As a leader navigating the complexities of team dynamics, I'm thrilled about the upcoming release of two new Out of Box Experience (OOBE) reports within the Microsoft Viva Insights app on Microsoft Teams. These reports delve into crucial aspects of our workforce, focusing on new hire onboarding and integration, as well as our external focus.

Scheduled to roll out from late March 2024 and expected to be fully implemented by mid-April 2024, these reports promise to revolutionize how we understand and optimize our team's performance.

The first report, New Hire Onboarding and Integration, is particularly exciting. It promises insights into the onboarding journey of our new team members, shedding light on their experiences and identifying potential areas for improvement. Moreover, it aims to smooth the transition for employees stepping into new roles within your organization, enhancing their professional development journey.

Equally compelling is the External Focus report, designed to provide leaders like myself with a comprehensive understanding of how our team members are managing external relationships. In today's interconnected world, effective communication and collaboration beyond your organization's boundaries are paramount. This report equips us with the insights needed to refine our strategies and strengthen our external partnerships.

As we anticipate these transformative insights, it's essential for your organization to review and assess the potential impact. By staying informed and proactive, we can leverage these reports to drive positive change within our teams.

I encourage you to delve deeper into the details of these Leader reports and consider how they can elevate your leadership journey. Let's embrace this opportunity to unlock new levels of understanding and collaboration within our organization!

Thx for reading.
