I'm honoured to share the news that Great Place to Work has named Salesforce the #3 Best Workplace in the UK 2018.
This is fantastic news for all of us at Salesforce, because this is the fourth year in a row that we have earned a top 3 finish. We are humbled to be featured alongside world-class companies and motivated to continue to strive to make the best workplace that does good for the world and our whole Ohana (“Family” in Hawaiian).
Salesforce has been committed to a great workplace culture since long before I joined in 2013. However, without every employee working together to ensure this vision is enacted, it wouldn't be possible. We hire employees who live and breathe our four core values: trust, customer success, innovation, and equality. As members of the #SalesforceOhana, it is each of our employees’ personal responsibility to live those values — and to bring our culture to life in all that we do.
We also believe we can do well as a business, while also doing good in the world. Our UK team has recorded more than 46,000 volunteer hours in the last year alone. Salesforce also actively supports a number of projects that promote equal access to education in the UK.
Most recently, we awarded a grant of $150,000 to Apps for Good, an organisation delivering tech excellence in schools and producing more able, self-confident, collaborative young people through app building. This investment is helping them deliver their programmes at scale in harder to reach schools and less well resourced areas, enabling teachers and empowering students. Our passionate employee volunteers also work directly with the charity, developing their programmes and content, and volunteer in schools to introduce tech concepts to students and get them excited about the range of rewarding career opportunities in the tech industry.
With such great opportunities to give back, it is no wonder our employees are so inspired and motivated — it's also just one of the ways they make such a positive impact every day on the lives of our customers, partners, and members of our communities, as well as each other.
We're excited about what the future holds: The UK business is our #2 market and we continue to grow our business and our workforce, and to champion our core value of Equality along the way. We know that cognitive diversity and inclusion at all levels is critical to success, and I'm so proud that we're one of the first companies to appoint a Chief Equality Officer, who keeps us focused on four key areas: equal pay, equal rights, equal opportunity and equal education.
And, our impact extends far beyond our own business and employees — IDC forecasts that by 2022, the Salesforce Economy in the UK will generate more than $65 billion of net new business revenues and create 329,160 direct and indirect jobs.
Clearly, this is an exciting time to work at Salesforce. But, don't just take my word for it — here’s what members of our UK team have to say:
