A New Way of Working at Salesforce Tower Sydney

The beautiful Salesforce Tower Sydney has officially opened. Learn about this iconic new building and how it has been optimised to improve the employee experience.

A towering achievement

Talk about customer (and employee) 360! 360-degree views, that is. Salesforce Tower Sydney is now the tallest office building in Sydney, at 263 metres tall and 56 storeys.

The tower sits at the heart of a new development in Circular Quay called Sydney Place. The public plaza features stunning artwork created by Indigenous Australian artist Daniel Boyd and architect Sir David Adjaye.

The state-of-the-art tower serves as a hub where our employees, customers, partners, Trailblazers and community can come together to connect and collaborate. It has allowed us to create a workspace that reflects what our employees need in 2023 and beyond.

Investing in APAC business success

The new Salesforce Tower reflects Salesforce’s commitment to investing in Australia. For more than 20 years we’ve been supporting and advocating for business, here and in the wider APAC region.

Our commitment goes beyond New South Wales, too – the tower is just one of a network of offices across the country – in Melbourne, Brisbane, Canberra, and Perth – as well as many more bases across the APAC region.

To support the growth and innovation of regional businesses, the tower features the latest Salesforce Innovation Centre (SIC). Designed as an executive briefing centre for senior executives, the SIC team curates bespoke, tailored agendas and experiences designed to educate, inspire and strengthen relationships with our Trailblazers.

Supporting community at Salesforce Tower

At the top of the Sydney hub sits three ‘Ohana Floors – flexible, open spaces, designed for our employees, customers, partners and community to use. In particular, these spaces will soon be made available to not-for-profit groups to use the space at no charge on weeknights and weekends.

The Sydney Salesforce Tower ‘Ohana floors join similar floors in Atlanta, Dublin, Tokyo, New York, San Francisco, London, Chicago, and Indianapolis. They are part of our global commitment to give back to our global communities. To date, events hosted on ‘Ohana floors throughout the world have raised millions of dollars for charity.

The tower contributes to another of Salesforce’s core values – sustainability.

Salesforce Tower Sydney has achieved Sydney’s first-ever WELL Core & Shell Platinum pre-certification — the highest attainable pre-certification. The WELL Rating system measures, monitors and certifies the built environment, and ultimately aims to reduce the building’s carbon footprint. This rating also means the building has been recognised for how it prioritises tenant health and wellbeing, considering aspects like fitness, air quality and lighting.

The tower is also set to achieve a 6 Star Green Star Design and As Built rating, representing world-excellence in sustainable design. As well as recognising responsible design and construction practices, the rating also encourages and rewards solutions that create resilient buildings able to bounce back from short- and long-term stresses.

An Environment Optimised for the Employee Experience

The way we work has evolved – with employees working in our offices, on the road with customers, and at home.  And yet, many office spaces are designed for old ways of working. Salesforce Tower Sydney incorporates a new way to think about workspaces. They are optimised for how employees work today, while enhancing community, collaboration, and productivity.

That’s why, instead of old-school cubicles, Salesforce Tower features more than 1,600 workpoints with neighbourhood seating and an open design. With this layout, teams aren’t chained to their desks and there is more space for collaboration and knowledge sharing.

By enabling open collaboration, we’re able to continue living our key value of innovation. As economic conditions and other macro factors reshape the business landscape, we consider it critical to create this culture of innovation that will help Trailblazers drive productivity and find new opportunities.

The State of Work 2023

This survey of over 18,000 desk workers, managers and executives reveals how businesses are changing the way they think about work.
