By Salesforce COO: The year 2023 didn’t begin on a high note for many people across the globe. Various companies announced large-scale layoffs and tech giant Salesforce was one of them. The company announced in January this year that it will be laying off around 10 per cent of its workforce, a decision that impacted around 7,000 people across the globe. And now, a fresh round of job cuts might just be around the corner for Salesforce employees.

Salesforce CEO Marc Benioff announced the company’s decision to lay off around 7,000 people in January this year.
The CEO had sent a letter to employees that read, “The environment remains challenging and our customers are taking a more measured approach to their purchasing decisions. For those who will be leaving Salesforce, our priority is to fully support them, including by offering a generous package. In the U.S., affected employees will receive a minimum of nearly five months of pay, health insurance, career resources, and other benefits to help with their transition. Those outside the U.S. will receive a similar level of support, and our local processes will align with employment laws in each country.”
