(Reuters) – Salesforce.com Inc will create 12,000 jobs over the next year, including 4,000 positions in the coming six months, Chief Executive Officer Marc Benioff said in a tweet on Friday.
Since the COVID-19 outbreak that has forced people to stay and work from home, the company’s online business software that supports remote work and e-commerce has seen significant demand.
The software maker, which recently joined the Dow Jones Industrial Average index, currently employs nearly 54,000 workers globally.
The company did not immediately respond to a request for additional details on the hiring. (bit.ly/3hHhTiU)
