While emojis can spark unexpectedly heated debate, at the end of the day, most people seem to give one another the benefit of the doubt and favor a positive interpretation. So as a pro-emoji workplace, we’re here to urge you not to be shy about using emojis when you’re on the job. Here are five reasons to embrace using emojis at work:
They don’t clutter the Slack channel.
If you use Slack at work, you can acknowledge messages by simply reacting with an emoji. Try 👍, 🙌, or ✔. This prevents the message from being buried when everyone wants to respond in a large channel.
They’re an easy way to show your colleagues appreciation.
Not everything needs an in-depth response. Leave beautifully worded notes for the moments that really deserve them, and use emojis to show positive affirmations in quick chats. It’s an easy way to spread some love with minimal effort! ❤️
