Create communities and bring teams together

‘I lead a government taskforce with employees from across Australia. Until now, it has been difficult to collaborate with the different teams in one place. GovTEAMS helps me to bring them together in an online workspace where we can meet, chat and co-author documents without having to be in the same office.’
Stephen Sanders, Human Resource Manager, Commonwealth Government

Securely share and co-author files from anywhere, on any device

‘Not having access to internal systems can be frustrating. Being able to securely share and co-author files inside GovTEAMS removes this barrier, especially when we’re not on site. GovTEAMS helps to boost our productivity, so we can focus on what matters – delivering for our client.’
Andrew John, Private Sector Consultant

Share news, updates and content with your communities

‘With GovTEAMS, I have built a community site using SharePoint Online – helping my teams stay up-to-date with recent activities, news and events. They can also search and find the information they need in the one spot. This has saved us time having to search through local folders.’
Stephen Sanders, Human Resource Manager, Commonwealth Government

Grow your network by discovering and connecting with people

‘GovTEAMS allows me to connect with people across government helping me access skill, expertise and capabilities outside of my agency. I can connect with likeminded people who can help drive change and contribute to my projects. It’s like LinkedIn but for government. Having a personal Delve profile inside GovTEAMS also allows me to promote my own knowledge and experience.’
Ava Lawrence, Policy Officer, Commonwealth Government
