Is Salesforce dead

Salesforce: The working day from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. is a thing of the past

The SAP competitor Salesforce is preparing for a permanent change in everyday work even after the corona pandemic. "The working day from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. is dead"Salesforce hiring manager Brent Hyder wrote in a blog post. However, the company has not announced which working hours will apply to employees in the future.

Almost half of Salesforce employees only wanted to come to the office a few days a month, according to an in-house survey by the company. At the same time, 80 percent of the employees wanted to maintain direct contact with their colleagues.

The specialist for corporate software from the network therefore wants to offer employees more flexibility even after the end of the pandemic. Most employees should come to the office one to three days a week - for work in a team, meeting with customers or giving presentations.

If employees don't live near a Salesforce office and don't have duties that require being in the office, they'll be able to work completely from home even after the pandemic. This will apply to a large part of the employees.

Anyone who has tasks that require constant presence in the office will, however, continue to work in the company's business premises in the future. According to the company, the proportion of employees who will be permanently in the office will be very small.

Salesforce sees improvements in staffing

In addition, Salesforce says it can break new ground when it comes to filling vacancies. In the future, new employees could be sought who did not live in the traditional city centers. Hyder describes another change if you do not have to be in the office for your tasks, you can also live in the country and work for the company from there.

"In the constantly connected world, it makes no sense to expect employees to work eight-hour shifts"wrote Hyder. Teams would sometimes have to be managed across different time zones, depending on the season there may be more or less to do - or private and professional duties simply have to be balanced.

"Employees need flexibility to be successful", summed up the Salesforce manager. The company's offices are to be remodeled from desk landscapes to more common areas. According to information from the beginning of last year, Salesforce had more than 49,000 employees.
