Years ago, while on sabbatical in Hawaii, Marc Benioff had a vision for a different kind of company – one built around not only a new technology, business, and philanthropy model, but also built around the Hawaiian concept of “Ohana” – which means “family” in Hawaiian.
Today, Ohana is at the heart of everything Salesforce does. It is the deep-seated support system we nurture inside our company that extends from our employees to our customers, our partners, and our communities. It is the bedrock upon which our company was built and the foundation for all the success that has flowed – and will continue to flow from it. So what does Ohana look like in practice?
—It’s our employees knowing Salesforce is a place where they can be themselves, team up with other amazing individuals to accomplish the incredible, and have fun doing it.
—It’s our customers and partners trusting that we are here to help them succeed.
—It’s communities believing as we succeed, we will share our success with them.
—It’s our whole Ohana – Salesforce employees, customers, partners and nonprofits – working together to improve the state of the world.
Our core values – Innovation, Customer Success, and Giving Back – make our work meaningful, while our other values – Trust, Transparency, Equality, Wellbeing and Fun – ensure that we work together right. Together these values unite us, inspire us, and make us uniquely Salesforce – a great place to work.
Salesforce, the Customer Success Platform, and world's #1 CRM, empowers companies to connect with their customers in a whole new way. We founded the company on three disruptive ideas—a new technology model in cloud computing, a new subscription business model, and a new integrated corporate philanthropy model—the 1-1-1 model. These founding principles have taken our company to great heights, including being named one of Forbes World’s Most Innovative Company six years in a row and one of Fortune 100 Best Companies to Work For eight years in a row. We are the fastest growing of the top 10 enterprise software companies. The Salesforce Ohana (Hawaiian for "family") is made up of our employees, customers, partners, and communities, and together we are working to improve the state of the world. – less
