Salesforce Expands on Safety Cloud

Salesforce introduced Safety Cloud to help people get together safely. Building on that and expanding on existing health and safety innovations, Safety Cloud now helps businesses and communities manage testing, health and entry protocols to create safer in-person experiences at events and in the workplace.

Data shows getting people together safely and in-person is imperative to building and maintaining culture, employee retention and satisfaction, and business growth.

In a recent Salesforce employee survey, 77 percent of employees said they want to get together in-person with their teams

According to the American Express Meetings & Events Global Forecast, 81 percent of meeting and event professionals expect their events in 2022 to have an in-person element

Harvard Business Review survey shows that while hybrid work may be here to stay, there is an emerging consensus among business owners and employees that they are looking to be back in the office three days per week, on average.

“Businesses around the globe are looking for the best ways for their employees, customers and partners to get together, safely,” said Bret Taylor, co-CEO of Salesforce. “Testing is the path forward and Safety Cloud enables organizations of all types to take the complexity out of events and bring people together again with confidence.”

Nearly two years into the pandemic, businesses and communities continue to grapple with flexibly scaling their health verification initiatives to handle the COVID-19 landscape without affecting business operations. Testing is a critical aspect of how people safely get together, so to address this need, a robust platform to manage testing capabilities at scale is critical.

Safety Cloud enables organizations to operate safely in a new normal. In fact, Salesforce has now used different features from Safety Cloud to reopen 84 of its offices globally and host two large-scale company events, helping employees, customers, and partners feel safer.

Safety Cloud supports integrations with at-home, pharmacy and on-site testing options, including CVS Health, eMed, Cue Health, ixlayer, and Senneca DX. These testing options can be connected directly to Safety Cloud, making the testing experience easier than ever. In addition, Safety Cloud will support SMART Health Cards and EU Digital COVID Certificates, which are paper or digital versions of clinical information, such as vaccination history or test results.
