More than 26 million custom emoji have been created in Slack and the use of emoji in Teams is universal, revolutionizing the way we communicate. Some employees are capable of having entire discussion with emoji, and it takes just one emoji to change the meaning of the message. This session will discuss the challenges and risk associated with emoji in workplace communication and provide practical solutions for the problems they present. 👍
