Salesforce isn't waiting until its January reopening to get its teams together. The software giant is encouraging managers to gather their teams in person at least once before the end of the year.
"There's been too much focus on return-to-office dates," Salesforce President and Chief People Officer Brent Hyder said in a company blog post. "We've proven that we can come together safely in person through Dreamforce and our 65+ open offices around the globe."
The in-person get-togethers can take the form of a strategy session, workshop or holiday party, Hyder said. No matter the approach, the goal is to "fundamentally improve team dynamics after months of not seeing each other."
Salesforce's announcement reflects the reality of transitioning to hybrid work: It's a gradual process.
Plenty of tech offices have been open for months, even as large companies like Salesforce allow employees to continue working remotely until their full reopening, which Salesforce is still planning for Jan. 1.
