Is the 9-to-5 dead? Salesforce seems to think so. The San Francisco-based cloud computing giant this week revealed a new work policy for its 54,000 global employees, including over 9,000 Bay Area workers, giving them three options: flex, fully remote and office-based. Flex will apply to the majority of their workers, meaning coming into the office a few days a week for meetings and such, fully remote will mean never having to come into the office and office-based, is, well, self-explanatory. The company believes that “in our ever-connected world,” employees no longer need to adhere to a strict 8-hour schedule and rather can work around other duties, such as childcare.
