SWOOP Analytics has released what they call the “world’s largest-ever analysis of Yammer communities.” Yammer is Microsoft’s social network for business, and the findings reveal the top-performing companies for internal collaboration worldwide.
The company examined the collaboration behaviors of 98 organizations worldwide, representing more than 1.8 million employees and 15 million Yammer interactions over a six-month period.
SWOOP’s 2019 Global Yammer Benchmarking report found Yammer communities have grown and prospered over the past 12 months, despite high adoption of Microsoft Teams. In fact, SWOOP found overall collaboration activity more than triples when both Teams and Yammer are deployed.
This independent finding of a growth in Yammer networks follows Microsoft’s unveiling of a redesigned Yammer, which includes new capabilities and integrations with Microsoft 365 tools such as Teams, SharePoint and Outlook.
In the report, SWOOP recognized the world’s top Yammer performers and presented them with SWOOP Awards for Outstanding Collaborative Performance.
The winners of the 2019 SWOOP Awards are:
Organizations with 5000+ employees
Organizations with 1000-5000 employees
- Medibank – Private health insurer

“These organizations have proven to show outstanding collaborative behaviors on Yammer,” said SWOOP CEO Cai Kjaer.
“They have shared their experiences of how this leads to better employee engagement, leadership connection and a more collaborative culture.”
A cultural analysis shows that, when appropriately supported by executive leadership, Yammer can become an effective platform for cultural change across an organization, says SWOOP.
