San Francisco Mayor London Breed Unveils “Welcome Back to SF” Campaign
San Francisco Mayor London Breed this week announced commitments by major employers to return to in-person work during the month of March and help spur increased economic activity in the city’s downtown business district. By pledging to Welcome Back to SF, companies commit to implementing some form of return to in-person work policies in March. The Welcome Back to SF pledge signifies a critical milestone in the resumption of economic activity and progression towards adopting long-term operating models that respond to the needs and considerations of individual businesses and their employees.
“By committing to San Francisco, these businesses and many more are investing in this City and what makes it special – the people who live and work here,” said Mayor Breed. “We are excited to welcome people back to downtown to work, to dine, and to experience the arts and culture that make this City special. This March is the start of a new beginning for this City, and I want to thank all the businesses and workers who are committed to supporting our city and our small businesses.”
The Bay Area Council, which is without a physical office until July, applauds Mayor Breed and SF Chamber of Commerce CEO Rodney Fong for their leadership in developing and promoting the Welcome Back to SF campaign. Many Bay Area Council member companies were among those making the pledge, including Bank of America, Blackrock, Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco, Gap, the Golden State Warriors, Google, JP Morgan Chase, Kilroy, Meta, Microsoft, Salesforce, the San Francisco Giants, Uber, United Airlines, University of California San Francisco, Visa, and Wells Fargo.
