“The business of business is to make the world a better place.”

-Mark Benioff, Chairman & Co-CEO, Salesforce

Salesforce is committed to a set of core values—trust, customer success, innovation, and equality for every human being.



Trust is our #1 value—nothing is more important than the open, transparent relationship we have with our customers and all of our stakeholders, including our employees, partners, and communities.

In the Fourth Industrial Revolution, its more important than ever to trust the companies that you do business with. And we're proud to have trust-based awards like #1 on Fortune’s World's Best Workplaces list, and Forbes ranking the company one of the world's most innovative companies for eight years in a row.

Together, we can reach Equality for all

Equality is a core value at Salesforce. We believe that businesses can be powerful platforms for social change and that our higher purpose is to drive Equality for all. Creating a culture of Equality isn’t just the right thing to do, it’s also the smart thing. Diverse companies are more innovative and better positioned to succeed in the Fourth Industrial Revolution.

The trail to Equality for all starts with transparency, education, inclusive dialogue, quick action, community building, and an unbreakable commitment to making the world a better place.

We are taking action across four key pillars:

  • Equal Rights: We advocate for Equality in the communities where we live and work, including standing against anti-LGBTQ legislation and standing for marriage Equality.
  • Equal Pay: We advocate for equal pay and equal rights, paving the way with $6 million in salary adjustments.
  • Equal Education: We believe that every child deserves a world class education.
  • Equal Opportunity: We strive to create workplaces that are reflective of the communities we serve. We do this through our Ohana groups, workforce development programs, inclusive hiring, employee training, and more.

Giving back

We believe technology, when used for good, can change the world. To build a better world, we need the best technology. Almost 20 years ago, the 1-1-1 Model of Integrated Philanthropy laid the foundation for Salesforce.org to grow into the social enterprise that we are today, allowing our communities to unlock even more impact.

Salesforce.org works to get technology in the hands of nonprofits and education institutions so they can connect with others and accelerate their impact. As a social enterprise, the more causes our technology supports, the more we are able to invest back into innovation and communities, creating an endless circle of good.

To date, we have 39,000 non-profits using our technology, we've given over 240 million dollars in grants and we've volunteered over 3.5 million hours in the communities in which we live and work.

We are committed to living and breathing these values in everything we do - including our events - and as such we have put a clear focus on learning, giving back and equality throughout Sydney World Tour 2019. We encourage you to join these sessions and learn how your business can embrace the power of learning, the importance of giving back and the Age of Equality.
