MARS launches Slack workspace for employees

At MARS Solutions Group, we strive to create a community atmosphere. In an effort to foster connection, our team has launched a MARS Solutions Group Slack workspace for our staff and consultants where you can ask questions, receive updates, and get to know your fellow Martians. In the workspace, you will find a list of channels. These channels act as chatrooms. The conversation within them should relate to the hashtag. Within our workspace, we ask that you abide by the following rules:

  • Send consolidated messages
  • Keep messages business-appropriate
  • Send chats only to relevant people
  • Pay attention to cultural context
  • Avoid emotionally loaded topics
  • Do not use foul language
  • Do not trash talk other consultants, employees, clients, or MARS Solutions Group
  • Do not threaten others

Failure to comply will result in you being removed from the workspace. These are in place to ensure a safe and friendly environment. Some channels are locked or private because they are client-specific. If you believe you belong in a locked channel, please reach out to us.
