A transitional policy is under review for employees who would have been eligible for Demandware’s Sabbatical Program in 2017. More information to come.
|December 31, 2017||
Salesforce’s Sabbatical Program provides U.S. employees with one week of unpaid sabbatical for each full year of employment. You can take it as a week per year or bank it and take it in larger amounts at a later date.
For more information about how to take advantage of this program and things to consider before taking your sabbatical, please review the Sabbatical FAQs [PDF].
Employees who would have been eligible for Demandware Sabbatical Program (through December 31, 2017) will be given the opportunity to request sabbatical and be paid per the Demandware original policy. You must take and complete your sabbatical by December 31, 2018.
We recognize that some of Salesforce's employee contribution costs are higher than Demandware. We are currently looking at a transition solution to provide a one-time support for eligible employees. More information to come.
