All companies possess their own unique workplace culture that shapes how things get done, how employees interact with one another, and how people behave. It’s a combination of the values, beliefs, vision, systems, and habits that an organization and its members share. But how do you ensure that culture is positive and authentic?
Slack forever changed the way we communicate and collaborate at work. Like many groundbreaking tools, it continues to present a host of unique opportunities, but also some new challenges.
So how do you get the most out of Slack while navigating its challenges? We’ve boiled it down to six major functional areas every Slack user should learn.
Commonly used in product development teams, daily standups can help any team get in alignment while working towards a common goal or deliverable. Here at Polly, we’re strong advocates of using daily standups (or daily check-ins) as a way to get a quick pulse on your team’s progress day-to-day.
Everyone wants to know they're a valued member of the team, and thoughtful new employee surveys are a simple, yet potent way to confirm that value and esteem from the earliest stages of employment on.
With Slack's Developer Platform launching Block Kit today, a new design framework that give Slack apps (like us) more visual flexibility and more control over message layout structure, it was a no-brainer that we wanted to utilize these new features to build a more interactive and visually rich Polly experience in Slack.
2019 is going to be a huge year for Polly users. We’ve spent the past four years of this company almost exclusively focused on building a valuable product. Our objective has always been to listen to our users, and building a compelling product based off their feedback. That’s what we’ve done, and that’s what we’re going to continue doing, but at a faster pace.
Time-based polls and surveys are great and all, but what if there was a way that you could programmatically send polls/surveys and pull results without having to go in and manually do it every time?
Being able to create polls and surveys in Slack to quickly gather feedback is one thing –– but being able to collaborate and share on some of your most important information is vital to keeping your team humming along and working more efficiently. Over at Polly, we've been working hard to make it easier to share, collaborate, consume, and engage with your peers day-to-day.
