Last month Salesforce, the cloud-based software company that provides applications focused on customer service, marketing automation, analytics, and application development, and employs nearly 54,000 people around the world, announced that it would allow most employees to work from home indefinitely, even after the current pandemic ends.
Salesforce will offer their employees 3 types of work type:
Flex – meaning the employees will be in the office 1-3 days per week for team collaboration, customer meetings, and presentations. This will apply to the most of Salesforce workforce around the globe.
Fully Remote – for employees who don’t live near an office or have roles that don’t require an office.
Office-based – for those who will work from an office location 4-5 days per week if they’re in roles that require it.
It is worth mentioning that this news comes two years after the completion of massive Salesforce Tower – skyscraper located in downtown San Francisco. What are they going to do with all this office space now? We shall see soon.
Earlier, many other big name tech companies such as Facebook, Twitter, Slack, Square and Shopify announced that they will allow many of their employees to continue working remotely even after the COVID-19 pandemic ends.
Techiejobs has recently conducted a poll asking our users whether their employers allow them to work from home these days. 79 precent of the responders answered "Yes" and only 16 precent answered"No". Another 5 precent of responders answered "Yes, but not every day".
Without doubts, cloud-based tools designed to help the remote workers collaborate and work efficiently, will be on a high demand in the coming years like never before. Switching to full remote will also affect corporate culture, hiring strategies and will open new job opportunities for techies around the globe.
