Computing company Salesforce declares the end of the 9-to-5 workday

The computing company Salesforce announced plans for most of its employees to work remotely, either part- or full-time after the pandemic, saying that the “9-to-5 workday is dead”.

Salesforce employees will have more flexibility to choose what their daily schedules look like due to this. The big tech company now joins companies like Microsoft and Twitter, who have also announced plans to implement work-from-home policies as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.

Brent Hyder, chief people officer at Salesforce, wrote in a blog post, “As we enter a new year, we must continue to go forward with agility, creativity, and a beginner’s mind — and that includes how we cultivate our culture. An immersive workspace is no longer limited to a desk in our Towers; the 9-to-5 workday is dead, and the employee experience is about more than ping-pong tables and snacks,”

He also said, “We learned that nearly half of our employees want to come in only a few times per month, but also that 80 per cent of employees want to maintain a connection to a physical space,” 

“So we are giving employees flexibility in how, when and where they work with three ways of working.”
