Oracle has become the latest major company moving its headquarters from California to Texas.
Wednesday, December 2, Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HEP) announced it was moving its headquarters from California to Houston. Oracle is now the second major company in as many weeks to announce such a move, with plans to move its headquarters to Austin.
Texas Governor Greg Abbott broke the news via Twitter.
“We believe these moves best position Oracle for growth and provide our personnel with more flexibility about where and how they work,” Oracle told AFP News.
“Depending on their role, this means that many of our employees can choose their office location as well as continue to work from home part time or all the time.”
As the pandemic has transformed the workforce, leading to widespread adoption of remote work, it’s a safe bet HPE and Oracle won’t be the last companies to move to greener pastures.
