In this weekly series, we'll highlight one question from the Support Driven Slack. The question will be posted in the #Weekly-question channel-- join the conversation by responding with your feedback or by replying to this email! 

Here's this week's question:
"where does support live in your organization? Is it top level (i.e. reporting to C-suite) or is it a part of a department? What are the benefits/drawbacks of how it’s set up?"
