Starting with Microsoft Teams, the Microsoft 365 Suite provides a complete collaboration tool. Companies that operate globally need such applications to improve corporate communications. Besides the real-time communication with Microsoft Teams, the classic Outlook for e-mails, you will also have social media platforms like Yammer as well. And do not forget the Smartphones which are present anyway all the time 😉
Communication and “when to use what” is very important in an organization.
When new colleagues join the company, they are often overwhelmed by the large number of such applications. You will take some time to give them an overview what they should use to communicate. Thats why Microsoft explained their “Microsoft 365 Teamwork” graphic during the Ignite Conference last year – and it worked!
Simply presented it helps you to explain the most important tools for when to use what in your daily business!
Of course there might be other tools outside the Microsoft ecosystem as well. In this case I recommend to create your own overview and hand out a communication guideline. You should also maybe prepare a short movie around communication culture in your company.
Have you already spread a “how to guide” for communication in your company? What was the response?
