Yammer is an incredibly powerful and useful workplace tool and it’s been popping up in the news more and more with recent case studies around British Airways, Sainsbury’s and Tesco. We want to have a look at what it is, why it’s useful and share some tips to help you get the most from using Yammer effectively.
Yammer is an enterprise social collaboration tool – essentially like Facebook for businesses - that provides a portal where all employees can connect, message and work together. This gives employees a platform where they are allowed (or even encouraged) to be more publicly social, informal and inventive without the intrusion of emailing everyone.
So why are businesses jumping onto Yammer? We would say there are two reasons. Firstly, this social community platform helps businesses to innovate and become a closer team, which has become very important in today’s start-up and ‘culture’ driven business generation. Secondly, and more simply, Yammer comes included with Microsoft Office 365 and as more businesses take advantage of the wide offerings that Office 365 brings, they are also gaining access to Yammer.
So, what do businesses use Yammer for? We’ve rounded up a selection of our favourite tips and ideas to help you think of new ways to use Yammer.
