How many applications do your employees use a day? How many times do they need to enter their log-in information – and more importantly, how often are they dissuaded from taking that next action because their browser logged out or a new application must be opened? Alternatively, how often are they pulled from a task by a Microsoft Teams ping that prompts their immediate attention? 

Integration may not be the most glamorous of software features, but it is arguably one of the most vital for ensuring high employee engagement and activation rates. And while integration with your other HR solutions like your LMS is vital for the harmonization of skills data from those touchpoints, integration with your daily collaboration tools – that is, integration in your flow of work – is essential to ensuring that your skills library and framework is a reflection of the real-time talents of your organization. 

365Talents integrates with several collaboration tools on the market, including Slack and Workzone, and our Microsoft Teams integration is exemplary of what this type of capability can unleash at your company. 

Let’s dive in.

Boost engagement through integration

Embedding your skills and talent management solution in your employees’ flow of work through a Microsoft Teams integration is an invaluable strategy for boosting engagement, but the engagement benefits of integration extend past this one touchpoint.
