What is Viva Engage?

Viva Engage is a private, university wide communications and social network platform which allows you to communicate and collaborate with online colleagues online at your desk or on the go.

  • Viva Engage is currently available to members of staff only.

Why use Viva Engage?

The use of a social networking tool in a work environment may seem odd to some, but when used correctly it can provide fantastic opportunities for greater collaboration, interaction, and involvement whatever your job role or location

  • You can set up and join public and private groups. Groups can be created for team collaboration and communication, special interest groups such as research groups and social groups.
  • It allows staff to share ideas quickly across all levels of the university. Rather than emails, many people can participate in an ongoing discussion
  • It provides staff with a place to ask questions, share resources, discuss topics and collaborate.
  • You can connect and 'follow' your colleagues directly so you not only keep in the loop with what projects they're working on and content they're sharing, but you can also instantly engage with the click of a button.
  • It's a great way to stay in touch with colleagues, especially if you work remotely a lot of the time, and catch up with colleagues in person infrequently.
