An introduction to Slack Enterprise Grid

Collaborate across your organization in Slack with the most security, flexibility and control

Slack is a collaboration hub that helps companies unlock the full potential of their people and technology.

Slack provides employees with dedicated, focused spaces to work with immediate teams (in workspaces) while allowing them to connect with the broader organization around projects and conversations (in channels).

What is Enterprise Grid?

Enterprise Grid is Slack’s solution for large or complex organizations. It empowers your company to work with the agility of a small company while tapping into the resources and shared knowledge of your enterprise.

It includes all of the security and governance functionality you expect in an enterprise solution but with an intuitive, consumer-like experience that results in unprecedented adoption. Enterprise Grid powers the work of some of the world’s largest companies—like IBM, Condé Nast, Oracle and E-Trade—and is the only collaboration product that can support up to 500,000 people.

Enterprise Grid is designed to mirror the way your company is structured and is made up of unlimited workspaces that are connected within the container of an organization. Workspaces are often provisioned for business units, departments or subsidiaries, but are flexible enough to support your organization’s unique needs.

Grid enables teams to work with greater agility while providing IT administrators with centralized tools to manage security and maintain compliance across the entire organization.

Slack has been the hammer that has helped us tear down the walls of silos across 21st Century Fox. It has enabled us to position Slack as the operating system of collaboration across 194 countries and 171 offices, pulling us together like nothing else has.
