We are using our own internal private Forem to complement Slack and have started hosting the product for some other orgs, and have gotten really good feedback on the approach.

Slack is a really slick, usable product, but helps dig deep silos alongside all the issues you mentioned. We're thinking of Forem for Work as somewhat experimental still, but it's been interesting to see how extremely excited some bigger teams are to reduce their Slack use.

Oh that's really cool. So you must be using Forem for your project management + permanent documentation + wiki and Slack for instant messaging?

We also use GitHub, which gets the more structured project management work. Forem is big for discussions, standups, meeting minutes, demos, feedback loops, etc.
