San Francisco-based tech giant Salesforce has reiterated to its employees something that our surveys have been showing for most of the pandemic: the 9-5 work day is dead. 

“An immersive workspace is no longer limited to a desk in our Towers; the 9-to-5 workday is dead; and the employee experience is about more than ping-pong tables and snacks,” Salesforce president and chief people officer Brent Hyder said in a blog post reported by the IndyStar.  Hyder said the company has adopted a Work From Anywhere approach that would give its tens of thousands of employees flexibility in how, when and where they work.

Most employees would work on flex schedules or part time from the office, meaning they’ll be there one to three days per week, usually for team collaborations, meetings and presentations. Employees who don’t live near offices or have roles that require them to work out of one would be fully remote. And lastly, a small population of the company’s global workforce would be office-based, spending four to five days per week at their offices if required, the paper reported.
