Communication is key to having a cohesive team, especially when not everyone is in the same room. Slack is one of the communication tools that Solid Digital uses that has been highly impactful to our culture. Everyone in the company uses it actively—we have channels specific to projects we might be working on, channels dedicated to each office sub-culture, and a #General channel where major announcements and company-wide communication takes place.
We have also expanded those channels to things like #Random, where you are allowed to share fun and off-beat content with the team. Recently we’ve even created #Solid-Dailies, a channel where we all interact and learn more about each other through questions and trivia.
Along with Slack, we host a weekly company-wide team huddle, which is a way for us to interact with the whole team, share our wins, good news, upcoming company events, and occasionally host a guest speaker or a team member showcasing some of the work they have been doing.
