Discover how your business can take action to broaden diversity in your workplace.

The future is inclusive and must be accessible to all. Hear how Salesforce is helping companies worldwide deliver diverse, equal, and inclusive learning programs that empower everyone.

The Salesforce ecosystem is growing, with 9.3 million new Salesforce jobs to be created by 2026, and the demand for digital skills is expected to rise by more than 50 percent by 2025. As companies look for new talent with these in-demand digital skills, I challenge you to get creative and explore how you can broaden your talent pool.

You’ve always trusted Salesforce to lead you through change, and now is the time for businesses to bring diversity and equality into the workplace to be more innovative, attract greater talent, and increase profitability.

Create and foster a culture of inclusion

Creating a diverse workforce starts with building a work culture that values diversity and equality. One of our core values at Salesforce is Equality. We want everyone–no matter their race, gender, sexual orientation, economic status, and visible or invisible disabilities–to have the equal opportunity to build a career with Salesforce.

We embody our value of Equality through our equality programs, as well as our inclusive hiring practices, sourcing talent from diverse backgrounds and underrepresented communities. Your business can do the same by partnering with Salesforce Authorized Training Providers to source and drive new talent into your workforce.

Discover the Salesforce Training Provider Program

Salesforce Training Providers are global partners who are authorized to deliver Trailhead Academy expert-led classes and build Salesforce expertise on our behalf. We work together to design learning offerings and provide learning materials that Training Providers can leverage to empower Trailblazers from their respective communities. This way, Trailblazers all over the world can learn the foundational, soft, and technical skills needed for placement in the Salesforce ecosystem.

And because Training Providers have unique missions—like the Blind Institute of Technology, which advances professional opportunities for people with disabilities, and TupuToa, which creates career pathways for Māori and Pacific leaders—they’re the perfect partner to work with to find new, diverse talent.

Representing blind professionals in critical workforce conversations is essential to build a truly inclusive talent pipeline.”

Prioritizing a workplace that values equality not only improves workplace diversity but also attracts even more skilled employees.

See how hiring diverse talent makes a significant business impact

According to a Glassdoor survey from 2020, 76 percent of job seekers and employees report that “a diverse workforce is an important factor when evaluating companies and job offers.”

Not only that, companies that prioritize a diverse workforce see significant business impact, including an increase in:

  • Innovation: A diverse workplace allows for more ideas and processes. This diversity of talent means a broader range of skills among employees, as well as varied experiences and perspectives, which increases the potential for productivity. By embracing employees from a range of cultures, companies can better deal with different nuances within the global marketplace.
  • Top talent: Companies that have a diverse workforce are often perceived as better employers. Potential employees want an employer who accepts and is tolerant of all backgrounds and treats their employees fairly.
  • Profitability: If potential employees or customers see that a company represents a diverse workplace, it makes them feel like they can relate to the company more. Seeing mature-aged, differently-abled, and ethnically diverse people encourages applicants to apply, promotes a positive reputation, increases marketplace awareness, and generates a more diverse client base.

Indigenous Māori and Pacific tertiary talent brings a mindset of resilience, innovation and authenticity into the workplace. The unique cultural perspective of te ao Māori (world view from a Māori lens) and Pacific is highly sought after and needed for decisions, design, and solutions to disparities in key sectors like health and education, and to truly reflect the communities they serve.”
