Slack has quickly become the de facto option for internal communication in many modern workplaces, and Vibe for Slack is a plugin that addresses one of the few issues inherent in such a system. The plugin, which can be added to any Slack channel for free, sits in the background and analyzes the chat, then uses AI to process the language from the various team members and create a report about their morale based on the conversation.

Vibe for Slack divides emotional well-being in the workplace into five identifiers: happiness, irritation, disapproval, disappointment, and stress. It assigns a score to each of these based on the language in the chat, giving team leaders and human resource professionals an extra way to analyze the state of their employees.

Ultimately, Vibe for Slack has the potential to lessen stress and unwelcome anxiety in the modern, Millennial workplace.
