A new hospitality space in Salesforce Tower London has been opened by Salesforce. The world’s number 1 customer relationship management (CRM) giant will be offering this space for free to non-profits and community organizations at weekends and on weeknights.
The Ohana Floor of Salesforce is a flexible space that is available for Salesforce customers, partners, and employees. It would also be made available for local education groups and non-profits on weekends and weeknights at no cost. Organizations can make a request to use the Salesforce Ohana Floor.
Salesforce also has Ohana Floors in New York, Indianapolis, and San Francisco. Each one is offered absolutely free of charge for events by organizations that emphasize on social or humanitarian causes, workforce, or education development, or the environment. To date, events across the Ohana Floors of Salesforce have been able to raise more than $9.4 million for charity.
Salesforce announced grants totaling $1.25m to two charities at the opening of the Ohana Floor as its latest commitment to supporting workforce and education development. The CRM giant is offering a $500,000 grant to Ada, the National College for Digital Skills and a $750,000 grant to education charity Ark. The grant will support Ada to scale diversity in its digital apprenticeship program and it will support Ark to advance mathematics education through its Mathematics Mastery program.
Salesforce also shared its plan for expanding its Pathfinder Training Program into the United Kingdom. This program, which is one of the workforce development initiatives of Salesforce, is designed to address the skills gap by offering participants from diverse backgrounds the business and technical training they require to obtain jobs in the ecosystem of Salesforce. This is the time occasion the program has expanded outside of the United States.
Mayor of London Sadiq Khan recognized Salesforce at the event as a member of the Good Work Standard. Khan remarked he is delighted to assist Salesforce to open its new Ohana Floor and to accredit the CRM organization to the Mayor’s Good Work Standard. The London Mayor added Salesforce is not just setting a great example of how businesses can give back to the community, but it is also a joining a list of London employers committed to the very highest standards in employment practice.
Salesforce CEO, UKI, Dame Jayne-Anne Gadhia commented, today is a landmark moment for Salesforce in the United Kingdom and added the announcements made today underline our commitment to making sure the digital age works for everyone and helps generate equality for all.
