Houston-based energy technology firm Baker Hughes will relocate its corporate headquarters to the Energy Corridor by mid-2023. The new 130,000-square-foot office space is located at 575 Dairy Ashford Road, Houston, near many of the company’s energy partners. Around 1,400—or 20%—of employees will be affected by the move.
One of Baker Hughes’ goals with the relocation is to honor the company’s purpose: to make energy safer, cleaner and more efficient for people and the planet, Chief Human Resources Officer Deanna Jones said. Office space will be reduced by 346,000 square feet through the consolidation of Baker Hughes’ Aldine Westfield, Wesway and Equity Drive offices.
“Upon completion of the move, we will have achieved a nearly 50% reduction in our overall Houston office space over the last two years—supporting our financial goal to reduce costs through footprint consolidation and our sustainability goal to reduce emissions associated with our footprint,” Jones said in an email.
The new building will offer new amenities to employees, enhanced sustainability features and workspaces intentionally designed for collaboration, Jones said. www.bakerhughes.com
