Steps on your adoption journey

Get started

Let’s get started with Yammer. Yammer connects people and information across the organization. As part of Microsoft 365, Yammer helps leaders and employees engage, share knowledge, and create culture.

Engage your org

Use Yammer to create a more effective corporate communications strategy. Yammer can drive employee engagement and open discussions to the entire organization by facilitating two-way conversations between leadership and the wider employee base.

Train your org

So you’re ready to get started using Yammer but need a little training. Let’s find the right training to bring management and employees at all levels together to achieve organizational goals. Our Yammer training builds confidence and helps make sure everyone’s voice is heard.

Build Champions

Champions are essential to building adoption. If you like to help employees learn from the best practices and learnings of each other, connect people with common issues, goals, or interests, and share expertise openly across departments or teams, then you are a CHAMPION!

Secure your environment
