The modern workplace

Housing associations are seeing the benefits of a modern way of working - looking for new and innovative ways to empower their workforce and get the most out of their Office 365 investment.

Collaboration is a key element in improving efficiency and discovering smarter ways of working, and Microsoft Teams is the next-generation platform that can help you achieve this.

Teams is a central collaboration hub that is available as part of the Office 365 application suite. Over 500,000 businesses are currently reaping the rewards of its innovative features.

At TSG, we like to practice what we preach, and that's no different when it comes to Microsoft Teams.

The majority of our internal communications take place within the Teams platform - we’ve created Team sites to mirror the groups we work in for various tasks and projects, allowing us to collaborate freely and share our ideas.

Those 'teams' also have dedicated channels within them to separate out conversations and key information by topic or fields.

What's more, the guest access feature means we're not limited to only communicating within the business, our customers and suppliers can join in too!

Recognising the potential in Microsoft Teams

We know first-hand that Teams can be used across entire organisations, in various departments, and have extensive experience guiding housing associations with successful implementation.

Social housing provider and north Wales’ largest housing association, Adra, saw the potential in Teams and chose TSG to help it roll out the platform across the organisation, encouraging and informing all staff members to use Teams to its full potential.
