So to overcome this, Salesforce has come up with a playbook titled “The Trusted Enterprise”. This playbook is designed explicitly for businesses to earn and win the trust of their customers, employees, partners and communities. This playbook highlighted the areas including- Trust, Sustainability, Customer-first, Health & Safety and Digital headquarters.
