    Salesforce to cut workforce by 10% after hiring ‘too many people’ during the pandemic

    January 5, 2023 // In a letter to employees and a corresponding filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), Salesforce CEO Marc Benioff referenced the “challenging” environment in which it’s operating, pointing to the “more measured approach” its customers are making with their purchasing decisions.
