At the cloud-software giant, a staggering 52% of new hires come from referrals by current employees. It’s a major point of emphasis, as workers get a cash bonus of $2,000 for every successful referral. (Last year employees collected $7 million!) Recruiters must review and contact these candidates within seven business days, and the company even has an app that lets employees see the status of the potential hires. In 2018, Salesforce opened the Office of Ethical and Humane Use of Technology.

Last year the office worked with employees and firearms and policy experts to help craft the policy that prohibits the use of Salesforce services to sell some firearms and related accessories to individuals. “We recognize this is a truly complex issue, and one about which people feel very strongly,” says Paula Goldman, chief ethical and humane use officer. “We may not always agree, but I’m proud to work at a company where all voices are heard with mutual respect and understanding.”
