Salesforce is a cloud computing company that offers CRM, email marketing, and other software and services. As a result of its popularity among small businesses, it’s one of America’s largest tech companies—and Salesforce is also known for creating inclusive work environments where women have been able to advance quickly. The company also has an impressive record when it comes to supporting remote workers. This makes sense because Salesforce has more than 100 remote offices around world: The company reportedly saves more than $100 million per year in real estate costs by having most of its employees work remotely. In total, about 90% of Salesforce employees telecommute at least part-time. They include both technical staff and top executives who’ve been with the company for decades. For example, cofounder Parker Harris lives in Idaho but still oversees IT operations for all his employees from his local office (the corporation operates 24 hours a day). During conferences with overseas colleagues, he participates via videoconference so he can be seen back home on his computer screens; however, he uses cell phone video calling to interact face-to-face with his U.S.-based team members from their computers while they’re speaking over their webcams.
