In a recent announcement, Salesforce, Inc., an American cloud-based software company that provides customer relationship management services, has stated that it will reopen its San Francisco-based headquarters this May. However, the employees can still work remotely throughout 2021. Company president and Chief People Officer Brent Hyder have said that the company would decide how and when to reopen each location based on guidance from health officials and medical experts.
The company has also stated that it will open its offices in Palo Alto and Irvine, California, and more in the coming months. Regardless of whether a local office is reopened or not, the company will extend the option to all its employees to continue working from home till December 31, 2021. The company has planned a phased reopening stage; thereby, the offices will gradually reopen from 20 percent to 75 percent capacity, depending on the Covid data rating.
At this stage, the company will allow both vaccinated and non-vaccinated employees to work with them, and they will continue to follow safety protocols and provide testing when required. To date, 17 Salesforce offices are open globally and most of which are in the Asia Pacific.
