Hiring & Training

In 2023, Salesforce committed to train 1,500 refugees, including Ukrainian refugee women, across Europe over three years, by providing digital skills training. In addition, Salesforce committed to place 600 of those 1,500 refugees into jobs through its partners and clients in the Salesforce Talent Alliance.

Salesforce is part of Tent France and Tent UK, exploring opportunities to help refugees enter the labor market in these two countries, including through employment or job preparation.

Financial Donation

Salesforce.org committed to offering financial and in-kind services in support of integrating and upskilling refugees. Since 2015, Salesforce.org has provided more than $2 million through strategic grants and employee donations to non-profits which focus on training and upskilling refugees in order to help them progress into stable jobs, predominantly in the IT sector. Through this funding, more than 1,500 refugee youth have been positively impacted.


Salesforce.org has also built its own mentorship and training program, known as Buddyforce, which matches Salesforce.org employees to refugees in order to support them with finding a job, learning the local language, and providing training on computer skills and Salesforce products. Salesforce.org has also committed to offering donated and discounted technologies to nonprofits involved in the refugee crisis. All nonprofits receive 10 free subscriptions and then steep discounts on additional technology solutions.
