The Most Popular and Favorite Slack Channels from Tech Companies

Not only is Slack a key part of how people communicate these days, but it has also become a way for companies to maintain their culture while working remote over the past couple of years.

So, we thought it would be fun to showcase the most popular or favorite internal Slack channels for companies. There are definitely some unique ones to check out!

We love seeing how Toasters come together over shared interests! Slack is a great way for us to connect over hobbies, learn something new, or get to know others across the business. We have countless channels for a variety of activities, interests, or shared experiences. Below are a few of our favorites:

#cooking- Toasters' love for food extends beyond supporting the restaurant industry- we also love to cook! Our #cooking Slack channel is full of delicious recipes, Instagram-worthy photos, and advice on how to perfect just about any dish.

#pets- Does anything brighten a day like an adorable pet picture? At Toast, we call our pets "biscuits," and we love showing them off! Every day, Toasters are sharing pictures of their beloved pets- dogs, cats, and even guinea pigs! This channel is also a great place to share training tips or favorite pet-friendly activities.

#toast_parents- The #toast_parents Slack channel is a beloved space for parents across Toast. It is a safe space to share updates about your children (or as we call them, "croutons"), post adorable pictures, connect over shared experiences (both fulfilling and challenging!), or ask for advice. A recent favorite ask: "SOS: Anyone know how to get sidewalk chalk off of fabric?!"

Our popular and fun Slack channel is:  #doug

With a lot of our workforce still working remotely, we rely heavily on Slack to stay connected with our teams. We have a ton of fun Slack channels that are active each day, here are a few of our favorites:

Each of our Employee Resource Groups have their own Slack channel, like #zoom_in_color, #aapi, #zip (ZoomInfo Pride), and #zoominfo_win (Women’s Initiative Network) where we discuss upcoming events, interact with daily questions, and learn more about each other, from each other.

At ZoomInfo, we love our pets! Our #dogchannel and #meowinfo channel are active each day with employees sharing photos, stories, and pet parenting advice When you work in tech, sometimes gardening is just the kind of hobby to help you unwind, and our #garden_zoomies channel is full of photos that employees share of their personal gardens!

For those of us who still love music that brings us back to our high school years, our #zoom-emo channel is where we can discuss music, nostalgia, and upcoming shows - it was never a phase!

Our most popular channel, hands down, would be our Perch Pets page. Most days, employees share cute photos of their cats and dogs, but we've had chickens and ducks featured on this page as well! We also encourage posts of pets that are near and dear to us, even if they are no longer with us or aren't our personal pets. We hope that this channel brings positivity to the workplace and bonds team members across different teams. We've even had some clever memes created from our pet pictures. It definitely creates a sense of virtual pet therapy on days when you have a lot on your plate and need a quick pick-me-up. Fun Fact: Pet posts on this channel average reactions from 20% of our employee base.​

This is where Panoramians can give a shoutout to anyone for anything. It doesn't have its own emoji, but do you ever feel like remote high fives are missing that special "something" you get from slapping a real-life hand so hard it stings? One of our Software Engineers created a website that won't help with that but does add a degree of fun to our remote high-5s - Give your remote coworkers the high five they deserve, remotely!
