Keep employees engaged

From remarkable recruiting to collaborative company culture

Slack is a collaboration hub where the right people and the right information come together in organized, searchable channels. Whether you’re helping teams look for the perfect candidate or have a more fulfilling workday, Slack brings your company together.

Streamline your hiring pipeline

HR teams speed up their hiring process by facilitating candidate reviews and preparing for interviews in Slack. Integrating review tools and prepping interview panels moves candidates from on-your-radar to offer letter, faster.

Welcome new hires aboard

With Slack, new hires get up to speed sooner — gaining a head start on the job they were hired to do. Orientation leaders can facilitate onboarding in a new hire channel and new employees can scroll through channels to catch up on projects or discussions.

A shared channel can have members from different Slack workspaces collaborate on the same project in the same channel.
