Slack Workspace Manifesto

Posted on by Brandon Klein

Slack Workspace Manifesto

    We shall not have offices larger than 150-ish people when possible
    We shall always locate offices within reasonable walking distance from public transportation
    We shall avoid locating offices in dedicated tech hubs that limit the diversity of and influences on our community
    We shall have an open floor plan with easy access to many individual quiet spaces
    We shall encourage development in emerging and underserved communities
    We shall leverage in-house and local designers and artists to make each office reflective of Slack’s mission and the local community
    We shall encourage space redesign updates every 18–24 months to incorporate ideas from new employees and cues from our evolving culture
    We shall develop spaces at Slack that are public facing and allow for regular public interaction
    All employees should have safety and security at work with limited impediments to office flow, as well as safety in getting to and from the office
