Balancing out deep work and collaboration is one of our core values. While tools like Slack have completely changed how remote teams can work together, ill-defined expectations around availability & responsiveness has led to massively interrupted work days. We believe this has to change. One of the early practices we are experimenting with is for consultants to specify "Deep Work" time slots [ times of the day when you prefer to work uninterrupted]. This is different from doing a DND on Slack. This is about acknowledging that there is value in deep work and that we accept that as a culture. Not everything needs to be ASAP. Deep work is a joy and is celebrated.
