Need help with Yammer?

yammer-mascot-785x1024Have you been given a free Yammer licence with your Office 365 package?

 

Yammer may be the most common ESN platform today, and its user interface seems deceptively intuitive; yet it’s surely not the platform that’s most easy to make business sense with.

 

You’ll have heard about a few stand-out cases that work well, but our social intranet benchmark 2015 of more than 70 companies demonstrated conclusively that adoption rates in companies using Yammer are significantly lower than those using other social and collaboration platforms.

 

There are good reasons for this – not least to do with the fact that the way that Microsoft are making it free with an Office 365 licence, so many companies are having it installed without any compelling business case. All too often, the internal comms team are being given responsibility for introducing Yammer with little warning and no preparation or experience as to how to plan a successful ESN.

 

Meanwhile, in its wisdom Microsoft has decided to dispense with its entire team of Yammer customer success managers, whose job it was to help people make business sense of their platform.

 

If you are in the position of needing to implement a Yammer strategy and not knowing how to go about it, help is at hand.

 

The simply group runs a one-day course dedicated to inhouse IC teams to learn how to apply Yammer in their organisation. You’ll learn tactical skills in how to use Yammer better yourself, and also strategic insights in how to plan your launch, drive adoption and animate the network in your organisation.
