The business software company is renowned for its giving culture (it gives 1% of equity, 1% of product, and 1% of employees’ time to charity). Trends in hiring show how that giving flows back to strengthen the company: Salesforce has hired about 150 full-time staff to date from “Year Up,” a tech-training program for underrepresented minorities that is one of its main philanthropic partners.
