Yammer has been at Manhattan Associates for over 2 years. It is used across the globe and across all departments so that we can work more effectively and efficiently. Key initiatve to break down silos, help departments work together, find answers when we don't always know who to ask.

MS Yammer is currently utilized at my organization to ease interdepartmental communications between various users.
The ease of use affords users to keep their respective email inboxes a bit cleaner. Yammer has also been utilized as a social medium to keep users apprised of events and updates in other departments across the country.

We use Yammer as a company bulletin board. We share new employee hires and resignations, company successes, and areas for improvement, process flows, and documents, region or team-specific news and more. The entire company uses Yammer. We have a range of all-company forums based on category and several department-specific forums. Using Yammer allows us to share information with the company without it getting lost in email inboxes. We find it better it a better tool for information that has a long life or needs to be referred back to at a later time, compared to using instant messaging tools like Slack (which we use for briefer announcements).

Microsoft Yammer is being used across our whole organization. Our main use of Yammer is to get people involved with our different employee network groups. We’ve found it to be a great collaborative solution where we can give individuals the opportunity to work and chat with people they may not have the opportunity too on a daily basis.

Yammer is our hub for social networking within the company, allowing for sharing of various internal news from sales team wins through to birthdays. We are broken up into various groups from "Product Q&A" to "Animals" ensuring there is an open forum for news and discussion across the company.

We used Yammer for departmental communication and collaboration. It helped us organize related project ideas and notify each other of changes. Now Microsoft Teams has mostly replaced the work we used to do in Yammer.

Yammer is used across the enterprise - Both Unum employees, Colonial Life's parent company, and Colonial Life employees use Yammer to engage with one another in a more casual setting. Rather than bombarding inboxes with emails, employees post on Yammer for company events, congratulations and relevant life updates. Groups are also formed for specific committees and resource groups. Yammer is used for a hub of updates and keeping people in the loop without having to read lengthy emails.

Yammer helps me and the rest of my team share and communicate in an efficient and timely manner. We can start topics, share insights, and collaborate easily. With users around the world, we are all often not online at the same time. Yammer lets us share our thoughts and idea, then get feedback from those working around the world.

We are in the very early stages of implementation and have yet to decide to do it. Until recently, data for Yammer was only stored in the USA which was a nogo for us as a European company. For the initial testing/proof of concept we are doing the collaboration and communication features are good but we haven't decided on it yet.

For teams to share successes and recognition, organize company events, and dialogue on best practices across the organization. From entry-level to the executive level, everyone goes to Yammer for help, to help others, and to get the latest company information. We also run remote groups and social events through Yammer.

There are many churches spread across Vermont and when we transitioned to a new database, we used Yammer as a way to communicate questions and information so that all could see. This was more helpful than using email because we could see if our question had already been asked and answered

Used on our internal communications page by all company members to post events, personal updates and whatever else is going on with team members. Framed into our Share Point site as a scroll on the right side. Updates can come from anyone and anyone else can comment on posts made.

My entire organization adopted Microsoft Yammer as a part of our shift to using the new suite of Office 365 applications exclusively. Microsoft Yammer has helped to streamline communication and collaboration across different organizations and serves as one of the primary ways that people connect on a range of projects, programs, and other initiatives. In addition, associates use the tool for discussion around general topics, shared interests, and to ask questions.

Yammer is used throughout many (not all) departments within my organization. Our company is considered a printing manufacturer, digital marketing agency, and marketing solutions partner. Yammer is primarily used within our corporate teams - and is primarily used for breaking down communication barriers between departments. My department most often uses Yammer in order to create collaborative content for other employees across different locations in the company. I am a corporate trainee in a rotational role - and I often use Yammer in order to keep myself updated with other members of my team. Yammer offers a way to collaborate within a tool that is modeled strongly after other social networking platforms. For a group of trainees that are in a younger demographic, Yammer works really well for quickly understanding the tool. I often use Yammer in order to message other trainees, respond to polls, and network across our company. I have really enjoyed Yammer and view it more as a communication tool for a smaller to mid-sized group of individuals.

Microsoft Yammer is used for the general direction of communication, dissemination and information of the company.

It is being used for the fulfillment of the following tasks: issuing of official communications to the staff, establishing communications between the executives of the company, organizing the logistics for the operation of business and personal events, publishing relevant and confidential information. Thanks to Yammer, the company has managed to strengthen the communication among the staff, obtaining favorable results through the optimization of the processes.

As a part of Microsoft 365 subscription Yammer is using across the whole organization.
Marketing, HR and some other departments are not into another "team messagers", so through Yammer all departments can be notified with a important / interesting information. Yammer provides an effective way of communication in both small and large groups of people at one time. It's kinda like a company's "Facebook"

We used it as a tool to help our department keep up to date with ongoing daily operations. It replaced the daily stand up for us predominately, and also served as a great way to quickly get out information to a large group of people.

I use Microsoft Yammer as part of a non-profit technical consortium that our organization is a member of. It is used to collaborate between various working groups for users in many different similar organizations. Users can post questions in a variety of groups organized by topic, track responses, and get alerts to topics or threads of interest.

We are using as a social media page for internal teammates. to help express themselves. Something similar like FB but only within the company. Helps build relationships and rapport within the company, from CEO to the front-line teammate, we can communicate.
