However, if your team is spread across the country, globe, or even companies (yes, companies), you’ll appreciate the innovative collaboration features Slack offers for keeping you and those you’re working with connected and productive.

Honestly, it’s the type of resolution that ends up on nearly everybody’s list, almost every single year.
So why is productivity one of those things that we seem to be forever chasing, but never able to truly achieve?
