APAC vice president for employee success, Salesforce
When it comes to HR – or ‘Employee Success’ as it’s known at Salesforce – Ismail Shariff knows how to truly excel. He embodies the Hawaiian concept of ‘Ohana’ that is representative of the corporate culture at Salesforce. This means that family members, whether blood-related or adopted, are bound to each other. At Salesforce the wider ecosystem of employees, customers and partners is viewed as one family.
Shariff has nurtured this togetherness with focus on Salesforce’s guiding process of V2MOM – a dynamic, real-time tool that aligns teams to the corporate vision. Employees also collaborate through the Salesforce integrated philanthropic model, named the 1-1-1 model, which leverages 1% of Salesforce’s technology, people, and resources to give back to communities around the world.
