Salesforce Set to Reopen Tower in May

Salesforce has reached another important milestone on the COVID journey: reopening its offices around the world. Its first U.S. office reopening will be the company’s headquarters at Salesforce Tower in May. At the same time, Salesforce will open its offices in Palo Alto and Irvine, with more in the coming months. But regardless of reopening status, Salesforce is extending its employees the option to continue working from home through at least December 31, 2021. Salesforce has already safely opened 22 offices using its Success from Anywhere return-to-work model.

As part of its strategy, Salesforce is introducing Volunteer Vaccinated Cohorts in select U.S. offices, starting with Salesforce Tower San Francisco, Palo Alto and Irvine. This means that fully vaccinated employees can volunteer to join groups of 100 or fewer people to work on designated floors in certain offices, following safety protocols and health mandates. Salesforce will have twice weekly onsite COVID testing as well as COVID health officers to assist employees.

In its phased reopening stage, offices will gradually reopen from 20 to 75 percent capacity, depending on the COVID data rating and local guidance. In this stage, Salesforce will welcome both vaccinated and non-vaccinated employees, and continue to follow safety protocols and provide testing where possible. The third stage will be a full office reopening with 100 percent capacity.
