Exploring Slack to Boost Employee Experience

Hybrid workplaces are the future. But hybrid or not, today there is an overwhelming need for collaboration and conversations to build a positive work culture. A need for connecting with people at a humane level that makes them want to turn up at work, every day! One such tool that has become an indispensable part of our work tool kit is Slack. Be it project management or sharing files or fun water cooler conversations, Slack is the place to go in many companies these days. 

Slack, an email-based communication platform is an exclusive way to talk for professionals of a particular organization. Here are a few interesting facts about Slack.

  1. Slack has the highest conversion rate of 30%, among freemium software products & ~60% of startups pay for Slack’s workplace communications software. Also, at least 65 companies in the Fortune 100 use Slack & its biggest client, IBM, has more than 350,000 users.
  2. There are over 2,000 apps and 750 bots on the Slack App Directory.
