Photo Credit : specialises in cloud computing and SAAS model. The company is strong in its value system and its culture is built on that foundation, which ensure every employee lives by it. The respect for employees and for the eco-system they are involved in is huge. The feeling of gratitude is quite evident and forms the nervous system of the organisation.

Sunil Jose, SVP and Country Leader, Salesforce .com, said, “At Salesforce, equality is a core value and a deep-seated support system we nurture inside our company that extends to all our employees across geographies and also to our customers, partners, as well as the communities we operate in. We are working towards our higher purpose of equality for all, we believe in equality, in all its forms — gender, LGBTQ, racial, or otherwise — is an issue that every company must address for its own benefit and to create a better world.”

He further added, “As the company grows rapidly around the world and we continue to hire new people, it’s more important for us to honour and recognise employees, who have been ‘riding the wave’ with Salesforce for years. That’s why our anniversary recognition programme is called Riding the Wave. This is our way of thanking employees for their long-term commitment to the company.”

The company launched a new podcasting platform with content curated by the development team in partnership with Sales leadership called the Salesforce Radio from the top of the dial. The Radio makes development convenient for busy salespeople on the go using their mobile devices.

Another effective practice is the meditation sessions. Employees can enjoy a technology-free area to unwind, reflect, and meditate. The company added more than 20 centres this year. They followed it up with a digital guided meditation programme that strives to make meditation easy for employees. The culture of ‘inclusiveness’ prevails at the company. There is an opportunity to learn something new every day. Transparency at work, customer-centric, employee care, team bonding, fair approach are some of the attributes, which make the place one of the best places to work.
