Culture+Technology:Transforming the Employee Experience

At Salesforce, we believe employee engagement is a key component to the success of a company. An inclusive culture and cutting edge technology is the backbone of our organisation, and key to our employee productivity. It’s this culture that has led to us being ranked as the #2 employer in the country by Great Places to Work UK (third year on the list) and honoured in Glassdoor’s UK Employee Choice Awards as one of the best places to work.

In this session, we will share how culture and technology combine to produce our industry leading levels of employee engagement. You will hear from our UK Employee Success leader about what drives our unique “Ohana” culture, and how we use our technology to develop super engaging programs and applications for every employee.
