The percentage of the connected population utilizing emoji in the workplace has increased from 33% in 2016 to 77%+ today. 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. Inevitably these communications are discoverable and require review for relevance and production. This session gives an overview of the challenges and risks associated with emoji (including case law) and provides practical solutions for the problems emoji present.
