"We want to enable employees to focus deeply, using their skill and brainpower on the projects and problems they were uniquely hired to tackle with the time that they have. To do this, we had to make sure Slack, our main method of communication, would help and not hinder the solutions. We developed guidelines to set our team up for better growth and productivity."
