Betterworks Integrates MS Teams with OKR solutions and conversations, feedback, and recognition and engagement

FREMONT, CA: The renowned enterprise software, Betterworks, which deals with OKRs, conversations, feedback, and recognition and engagement, announces integration with Microsoft Teams.

“Rapid change demands resilience and agility in the face of changing market conditions,” noted Doug Dennerline, CEO of Betterworks. “To achieve this agility, businesses are increasingly adopting a continuous approach to managing employee performance through OKRs and CFRs.

Communication is key to achieving team alignment and enterprise success, which makes a Betterworks/Microsoft Teams integration the perfect toolkit for these times and beyond.”

The leading collaboration software, Teams, now has 75 million daily active users, as said by Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella. Most of these new users have only recently begun to understand Teams’ benefits; now, one of the benefits is OKR notifications via Betterworks.

Betterworks’ integration, along with Microsoft Teams, will assist in ensuring the entire organizations to stay focused on work that matters most.

As companies make way for better functioning of the new work dynamic, it is crucial for business leaders to support their teams with several easy-to-use technologies that promote alignment, communication, and connection—among both personally and professionally. By functioning as one

Working together, Microsoft Betterworks can empower organizations to move forward with confidence.
