On a May 7 conference call with executives, Salesforce CEO Marc Benioff sketched out some details about how his global firm plans to reopen its offices.
To manage the return of its 50,000 employees around the world, Salesforce will use its own Work.com suite of apps, which will allow employees to register their temperature in the morning, using their phones, and track self-testing results. (The company recently debuted the same software for Salesforce customers to direct their own reopening projects.)
Contact tracing will be available through the platform, Benioff said. If an employee lets the company know they’ve developed a fever or another symptom of Covid-19, an in-house tracing team will immediately reach out to any employees the sick person had been around in the building the previous day and will instruct those staffers not to come into the office, but rather to shelter at home for two weeks.
