Salesforce Hires Again (3,300 New People After Earlier Layoffs)

In a strategic move aimed at rebounding from layoffs earlier this year, cloud-based software giant Salesforce Inc is gearing up to recruit 3,300 professionals across various departments.

This news follows the company’s decision to reduce its workforce by 10% in January, as reported by Bloomberg News, with insights provided by Salesforce CEO Marc Benioff.

The incoming recruits will be assigned to diverse roles spanning sales, engineering, and the teams dedicated to Salesforce’s data cloud product, according to Chief Operating Officer Brian Millham, who shared these details with Bloomberg.

At the time of reporting, Salesforce had not yet responded to a Reuters request for comments regarding this development.

In addition, Salesforce CFO, Amy Weaver, explained how AI impacts the tech giant in an interview with Yahoo Finance:

In January, Salesforce had revealed its intention to implement a 10% reduction in its workforce, coupled with the closure of certain offices.

This decision came in response to the consequences of rapid hiring during the pandemic, which had left the company with an excessively large workforce during an economic slowdown.

In a proactive response to the challenges posed by the downturn in technology spending, the enterprise software provider introduced a suite of artificial intelligence features and, for the first time in seven years, adjusted its pricing strategy upwards.

This innovative tool is set to be accessible across the company’s suite of applications, including popular platforms like the instant messaging service Slack and the data visualization tool Tableau.

Furthermore, clients will have the flexibility to tailor Einstein Copilot to align with their specific requirements.
