Today we’re proud to announce our first Salesforce tower in Asia Pacific, “Salesforce Tower Tokyo.”
Japan has been a cornerstone of our global presence since the very beginning. It was the home of our first international office 19 years ago, just a year after Salesforce was founded in San Francisco. Our Tokyo office started with three employees and has grown to more than 1,500 employees.
And as we’ve grown, so has our impact on the community. Employees in Japan have volunteered more than 140,000 hours to local nonprofits and education groups including CANVAS, Scout Association of Japan, Houkago NPO Afterschool. This announcement comes on the heels of Salesforce being awarded the distinction of the #1 Great Place to Work in Japan by Great Place to WorkⓇ Institute Japan.
As part of today’s news, we are also committing to adding 2,000 new jobs in Japan over the next five years, more than doubling our employee base in the region to further support customers in Japan and Korea.
