ExxonMobil plans to bring another 2,000 employees to the new 385-acre campus that it is currently constructing near Houston, according to the Houston Business Journal. Many of those employees will be relocating from Fairfax, Virginia, and Akron, Ohio.
The massive oil corporation hopes that the new campus - expected to be completed by the beginning of 2014 - will provide a place for continued growth, access to resources and improved communication.
"Including additional employees on the new campus will provide even more opportunities for collaboration and innovation, supporting ExxonMobil's mission of delivering energy to meet growing global needs," said ExxonMobil Global Services president Bryan Milton.
The energy giant is now planning on housing around 10,000 workers at the new facility.
The decision to relocate workers from Virginia and Ohio is part of larger plan for consolidation to maximize the company's resources, according to the Washington Post.
"It makes a lot of sense," Fadel Gheit, an energy analyst, told the news source. "Most of their operations are in Texas, in the heart of the energy business."
While it may be logical for the company, it might be difficult for the relocated employees. Moving out of state is complicated, but it can be simplified by hiring a long distance moving and storage company.
