Today’s Solutions: December 05, 2021

As many people have been asked to work from home during the pandemic to prevent the spread of the virus, a good number of companies have decided to make it a permanent thing and give their employees more flexibility to choose when and where they work from.

Now, the computing company Salesforce is set to become the latest tech giant to announce plans for most of its employees to work remotely part- or full-time after the pandemic, declaring that the “9-to-5 workday is dead”.

As part of the initiative, Salesforce employees will have more flexibility to choose what their daily schedules look like. The company is joining the likes of Microsoft and Twitter, who have also announced plans to implement work-from-home policies as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.

“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,” Brent Hyder, chief people officer at Salesforce, writes in a blog post.
