Prepare a launch event to create excitement around your company's new Viva Engage tenant.

A Viva Engage launch is an effective way to:

  • Show support for the company's goals.

  • Demonstrate leadership within the community.

  • Train employees on how and why to use Viva Engage to help them stay connected and productive.

Choose your launch event

Think about the type of launch event that works best for your organization based on company culture, business needs, and interests.

Consider these questions to get started:

  • How will your launch event support company objectives and business goals?

  • What type of activities will leadership and employees enjoy?

  • How much time and what resources will be needed to execute the launch?

Types of launch campaigns

  • Viva Engage tenant competitions: Organize a daily or weekly competition on your Viva Engage tenant, and award prizes or recognition to participants.

  • Executive discussion: Engage executives to participate in a one-hour, live discussion on Viva Engage. Decide discussion topics ahead of time, and assign a moderator who can facilitate the discussion.

  • Lunch & Learns / trainings / open house: Hold informal Viva Engage learning sessions to share sample messages, best practices, and encourage users to sign in and interact on Viva Engage.

  • Viva Engage tips: Post daily or weekly Viva Engage tips on topics such as how to use Viva Engage to accomplish a certain task or goal.

  • Free swag or treats: Hand out Viva Engage-branded or organization-branded swag as prizes to bring employees together to talk about Engage.
