It’s just an attitude that I see all the time. People think that because something is innately personal and small and time consuming that it can’t be valuable and isn’t worth our time. Building relationships? Showing respect? Not worth it. Just hack it.
Large companies have no clue what their employees are doing. I discussed this flaw a CISO of a giant payment processing company. He assured me this wouldn’t be a problem, as their employees weren’t supposed to communicate through Slack. They had their own intranet set up to handle these things. I proved him wrong by joining 8 rogue Slack channels actively used by 332 employees all around the globe. I ended up getting a $5,000 bounty for it.
