In response to COVID-19, our company, like many others, is encouraging working remotely.  I remember reading several stories years ago about companies using Yammer to coordinate communications during extraordinary times such as these, such as floods and hurricanes.  While this is a different sort of event, it's still one that affects us all greatly, and a world-shrinking and connecting tool like Yammer could really help.

 

Would anyone have any videos or articles available which would show some of these past successes?  I'd like to share them with our communications team to help develop a way for Yammer to be part of our active toolset for helping our workforce during this event.

 

Thanks!

@Tom_Kretzmerone of our senior marketing specialists wrote about how she has been using Office 365, including Yammer, to coordinate with global offices while being locked down in China the last two months.

Hope this helps.

 

Microsoft has announced a 6-month free subscription for Office 365. It has been so far a very kind decision from Microsoft in this period of time. My organization is also facing a shutdown due to this epidemic of coronavirus. In this difficult period of time. But my team is working remotely so that we can fulfill the expectations of the client. We are using a virtual desktop to deal with this epidemic. Though it is not a long term solution still you can be a little productive.

@Michael Segner This is exactly the type of article I was looking for, and I'm going to post it in our corporate Yammer feed.  Thank you!
