Salesforce is one company that truly walks their talk.
Here’s what I inferred about their values and culture from just one day at Dreamforce:
1/ Environment: Be Mindful. All the nomenclature and products used referenced the environment reminding us all to tread lightly and reduce our impact.
2/ Transparency: Build trust. Customers asked for greater pricing transparency so what are they getting….published rates! Transparency is used to build trust within the organization and with customers.
3/ Inclusion: Be Open. The diversity of the people attending, speaking and customer involvement spoke to their commitment to inclusion and the value of sharing of ideas and lessons learned.
4/ Community: Empower. Community leaders are recognized and empowered to help everyone thrive. After all, big initiatives take a village to do well.
BTW – they are doing some pretty amazing things with their technology too that will help us all blaze new trails. We’ll share more about that in future posts.
