Your team are missing key info shared in Slack
Key information will get missed if it's only shared in Slack
Chat messaging is a rapid, scattered, and disposable form of communication. Topics can change in an instant. Participants drop in and out. Much of the conversation is filler and forgotten moments later.
If you're only sharing vital company information in Slack, how can you be confident it has been read and retained by everyone on your team who needs to? You can't.
Things will get lost amongst the neverending wall of messages and notifications. Your team will miss important posts they need to read.
Don't make your team feel the need to read everything
We've all been there with countless unread messages across channels in Slack. You feel compelled to try and read them in case there's something you need to see. And that's exactly what your team members will try to do as they don't know what they can afford to miss.
Unless you've mastered the art of only communicating in conclusions, the majority of messages your team will read are filler and they're wasting their time. They end up constantly distracted checking Slack. Your company productivity suffers as a result.
You need to give your team permission to not follow everything, safe in the knowledge that what you need them to read will be brought to their attention.
Ready to ensure you key Slack posts are seen?
