Two out of the top 10 jobs in the United States that are the best-paying jobs are Salesforce administrators and Salesforce developers, and so we're trying to create a $400 billion Salesforce GDP.

Apr 04 2017 - Inequality

When we do future acquisitions, I will ask the question, have we looked at the pay gap for the company?' . I've never had to do that before. Honestly, in some ways it's shocking. In other ways, it's kind of like, gee, why didn't we think of that?' . If we don't fight for equality, then the forces of inequality will take us over. It may just be that every year we're going to be making an adjustment like this. We're not a static company.feedback

We would encourage you to take a moonshot goal to create 5 million apprenticeships in the next 5 years. And I think the key is, we see all these great programs and these great companies doing workforce development. If we all came together and unified to create a great program with your leadership, I think we can break that 5 million extra jobs in the U.S.feedback

But the reality is, because the market is roaring, the acquisition window is really narrowed, and I just don't see any acquisitions in the short-term. It's very exciting, so we just released our spring release Salesforce, so all of our customers around the world have Einstein now built into their Salesforce implementations.
