Salesforce said Monday that it will reopen its San Francisco headquarters in May, however its employees can in any case work remotely through the end of the year.
The organization has already reopened 22 of its offices, as indicated by organization president and chief people officer Brent Hyder, who wrote in a blog entry that Salesforce would choose how and when to reopen each location based on direction from health officials and medical experts. “We have an opportunity to create a workspace and an employee experience that makes us even more connected, healthy, innovative and productive,” Hyder wrote.
The organization designs a three-phase approach for offices, with the primary stage limited to US employees who live in regions where Covid hazard is flat or declining. Salesforce will expect employees to take COVID-19 tests double seven days. The subsequent stage will see offices continuously reopening from 20 to 75 percent capacity depending on local conditions, and the third stage will be a full office reopening.
Salesforce has been redesigning its offices considering COVID-19, adding plexiglass between desks, air purifiers in conference rooms, touch-free handles for doors, and temperature screening stations, as well as providing hand sanitizer.
Salesforce is the greatest employer in San Francisco, and the organization’s return to its downtown headquarters could be a bellwether for different companies around there. Facebook likewise plans to get back to in-person work at its Bay Area offices one month from now, and Uber reopened its Mission Bay headquarters, at limited capacity, on March 29th.
