Salesforce plans to hire 3,300 employees following earlier layoffs
Salesforce is starting a hiring spree, planning to bring 3,300 employees across different departments on board.
The move follows the software company’s decision to trim its workforce by 10 percent in January.
CEO Marc Benioff said: “Our job is to grow the company and to continue to achieve great margins.
“We know we have to hire thousands of people.”
Millham said the new hires will be distributed among sales, engineering, and those involved with Salesforce’s data cloud product.
Salesforce had initially planned the job cuts and office closures due to an overly expanded workforce amid the pandemic and an economic downturn.
