Hiring & Training
Salesforce is part of Tent France, exploring opportunities to help refugees enter the labor market, including through employment or job preparation.
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.
