Q: I saw that Microsoft announced Viva Pulse recentlly. What is the difference between Glint and Viva Pulse?
A: The products are intentionally very different, but complementary:
- Viva + Glint - A robust, organizational-wide survey used to measure company-wide objectives, such as cultural change or a new strategic direction. The results are used to drive action throughout the organization while individuals managers and teams receive aggregated responses that apply to their strategic goals.
- Viva Pulse - This platform allows managers and project leads to get feedback on topics specific to their team to better understand team needs and to support real-time action taking.
