Slack's internal share of public channel messaging is a whopping 70 per cent. I don't recall seeing a company with this high level of communication transparency. Usually, when I join a company as a leader I find the public channel messaging hovers anywhere between 10-30% of the total messaging volume. Could it be one of the reasons so many of us set the wrong Slack transparency culture across the startups is that Slack channel statistics is a mere afterthought for them? This becomes a huge hurdle as teams grow and taking corrective action is near impossible with the statistics slack provides out-of-the-box.
All about collaboration and the future of work

I previously shared our founding story and my history of solving startup communication and collaboration problems here. In this article, I wanted to focus on triangulating the costs of business as usual and show how startup communication could be fixed for good.
Our startup's mission is to remove communication barriers and break down information silos. I wanted to share my experiences (and horror stories) of why I believe the problem of collaboration is what makes or breaks a business. I've been lucky to have had four distinct leadership roles in fast-growing startups, all of which made it evident that leadership issues are usually not technological in nature. I'll elaborate.
We are proud to announce the launch of our beta program! This program is tailored for teams, who are ready to make their inter-team collaboration more transparent and open by allowing information to flow freely. So you have to have the guts to see how the sausage is made.
