Keep top-tier technical talent engaged and productive

Lead happy devs, connect company wide and unlock developer productivity – all with Slack

Delivering high-quality products and services requires high-quality talent. What’s the secret to retaining top performers while attracting the best possible candidates? We believe it comes down to three key actions:

  1. Give your teams tools that they love
  2. Create a dependable space for team communication
  3. Make it easier to spend time focused on high-value work

Lead happy devs

Facilitate the best employee experience by giving your developers a tool for the quick, real-time communication that they covet. Every Slack user can:

  • Organise conversations to reflect a team’s unique structure, projects and priorities, with unlimited channels
  • Speed up communication by replacing short messages and approvals with emoji reactions
  • Carve out focus time with notification preferences
  • Minimise interruptions by automating routine tasks with apps and custom workflows

‘We believe that to become the number one bank, we need to be the number one tech team. To deliver on the expectations of our clients, we need to give our employees access to the best tools, and Slack is one of them.’

Connect company wide

Information silos are almost always the root cause of duplicative work. Slack breaks down those walls and grants developers easy access to company experts, knowledge and code.

Sharing a message in Slack

Use Slack to:

  • Get the answers that you need, when you need them most, with a company directory and team-specific channels
  • Put projects and code libraries at your developers’ fingertips and help new team members get up to speed quickly with intuitive search capabilities
  • Help developers escalate urgent conversations and engage others at their convenience through a mixture of real-time and asynchronous discussion
  • Ensure that important updates and communications are easily seen in dedicated channels for announcements

‘Transparency and collaboration are crucial for us because that’s the focus we’re taking to build things for customers. If we can’t model that internally, it’s going to be really difficult to build software that way.’

Unlock developer productivity

Reduce costly context switching and increase the overall effectiveness of your team by integrating your existing tools with Slack. Those include:

To carve out even more time for the high-impact work your teams value most, like product design and development, move your huddles to a Slack channel and host them asynchronously.
