Overall Satisfaction with Microsoft Yammer

Yammer is implemented at our institution as another avenue for employees to connect and create engagement. This was implemented prior to the 2020 pandemic but has been accelerated in its use since.
  • It integrates into Office 365
  • It provides company-wide connection on one platform
  • It has mobile and desktop support
  • It competes with tools present in other Office 365 products
  • While integrated, it isn't intuitively accessible from multiple points in the ecosystem
  • Other products achieve Yammer's outcomes in better ways
  • It has fragmented our organizational engagement as it competes with other MS platforms
  • Some departments use it occasionally but it has contributed to overall "noise"
  • Departments that use it as their sole engagement platform does have a slight increase in engagement over the pandemic.
Yammer is very rudimentary as a broadcast tool and team notification. I has been surpassed in functionality and usefulness by all the other apps listed.

I wasn't involved with the selection/purchase process

Did implementation of Microsoft Yammer go as expected?

Yes

Would you buy Microsoft Yammer again?

If you are an organization that does not allow social integrations to your technology tools, Yammer provides a good option that allows for some engagement activities while limiting exposure to tools outside the Microsoft 365 ecosystem.
