Salesforce Plans to Add 5.48 Lakh Direct Jobs in India

Salesforce, a global cloud software company based in San Francisco, has planned to add nearly 5.48 lakh direct jobs in India.


Salesforce Chief Data Evangelist, Vala Afshar said that indirectly the IT company will create 13 lakh jobs in India.


"I think the impact of my company in India alone is going to create billions of dollars in incremental GDP. We are going to create 1.3 million new jobs indirectly with our customer and partner ecosystem but directly we are going to add 548,000 new jobs in the near future," he said.


"Every 3 seconds a new person in India connects to the internet for the first time. What that means 600 million today will be over a billion unique users connected to the internet in perhaps just in the next five years. This also means that India is poised to be the second-largest GDP in the world only behind China and ahead of the US,” he further said.


Recently, Salesforce CEO and Co-founder Marc Benioff also announced that the company would be adding 4,000 new employees in the next six months, and 12,000 in the next year.


The software maker currently has a headcount of nearly 54,000 workers across the globe.
