Walmart’s Site Promotes New “Home Office”
Retailing behemoth Walmart is showcasing its new headquarters campus, dubbed the “Home Office” with a splashy new video on its website.
According to Axios, "he company is building a new 350-acre campus-of-the-future for approximately 15,000 employees who work at HQ — a project it hopes will help attract and retain top-level talent, said Cindi Marsiglio, Walmart's senior vice president for corporate real estate.
"The new campus, just a few miles from the old one, will include several office buildings and parking decks, as well as a hotel, a child care center, a fitness center, outdoor spaces, restaurants and stores (see a map here).”
Axios also reported that "the overarching idea is to simplify living and working by boosting walkability and bikeability, with easier access to food, exercise, fresh air and child care:
- The company aims to incorporate natural light and nature into the buildings and campus more broadly.
- The Razorback Greenway, a 37-mile walking and biking trail, runs right through the area."
