Salesforce launched its first equal pay assessment in 2015 to determine if men and women were paid equally. It found that some salaries needed adjustment—for both men and women—so Salesforce spent $3M to eliminate statistically significant differences in pay. After a year of record growth, the company ran another pay assessment in 2017 and spent $3M more to close the gap. Marc pledged to evaluate compensation on an ongoing basis to ensure employees are paid consistently. Salesforce also aims to advance high-potential women into leadership roles by requiring 30% of the attendees of every company meeting be women. On behalf of Salesforce, he signed the White House Equal Pay Pledge furthering his and Salesforce’s commitment to equal pay. In April, Marc brought together business, government, and nonprofit and community leaders to honour equality champions at Salesforce’s first ever Equality Awards. The company has also been recognized as a top employer for women on career sites such as Glassdoor and InHerSight.
