For more than a year, companies worldwide have had to rapidly reinvent themselves. They’ve temporarily closed offices, updated their policies and adopted new technologies to stay productive and competitive in the face of unprecedented challenges.
As our customers look to the new normal of work, each organisation must decide for itself what mix of in-person, remote and hybrid work best suits its needs – there is no one-size-fits-all answer. However, what is clear in this work-from-anywhere world is that businesses will need to adopt a digital-first approach to work in order to maintain the flexibility, inclusivity and connection that they need to be successful.
Digital-first means encouraging people to work when and where is best for them. It doesn’t mean just taking the old ways of working – rigid nine-to-five workdays packed with countless meetings – and recreating them online. It requires a virtual headquarters that supports all ways of working: synchronous and asynchronous, in-person and remote, structured and informal.
We’ve reimagined how Slack can improve collaboration for anyone – no matter where or when they work. Here are just a few ways that we’re helping teams to do their best work, digital-first.
