Slack has been helpful when we brought on freelancers.

Slack is the primary way we communicate between the students and the executives for things that don’t really matter. We like to keep a channel of communication open. As millennials, a lot of our relationships were made behind the phone or online, but this can’t replace the interactions that we have as human beings. People like working at a company because they have great relationships with people that work with them. We pay our students to come in before and after their shift with the only purpose of having some relationship building time. We ask that they work with a partner. We get feedback on how they are liking their job and if we cannot do it face to face, we do it by videochat. We have to force interaction with people. Remote people as well.

Slack - Best Internal Communication Tools for Startups

Slack is an internal communication tool that helps companies stay transparent by funneling otherwise isolated conversations into one, easily navigated location. Slack creates channels for designated conversations, allowing members to stay in the loop and read archived discussions on the topic at hand. Slack stands out for its usability and stellar integrations, which make pulling files from other apps a snap. Slack also adds an element of fun to the package, giving users the ability to add custom emojis to the conversation to spice up the workday. Slack is one of the more expensive internal communications tools on the market, but its ease of use and integrations make it the most popular, as well.

How startups use Slack?

Slack’s overwhelming popularity extends to companies of all sizes and stages--it’s used just as frequently by Seed-stage startups as by their enterprise equivalents.

How much does Slack cost?

Free to use for an infinite number of users! Upgrades add additional features, controls and integrations, starting at $6.67/user/month for the Standard package, and $12.50/user/month for the Plus package. By the end of 2015, Slack plans to roll out an Enterprise package that will ring in at $40/user/month.
