HP’s new Houston campus brings Silicon Valley straight to Texas.
A project two years in the making, the 378,000-square-foot campus in Springwoods Village, north of downtown Houston, celebrated its official grand opening on February 7. Two new buildings, constructed from the ground up, replace HP’s previous Houston campus and are now home to around 2,300 employees.
The project is one of several HP has embarked on over the last few years to modernize facilities, enhance sustainability and meet the needs of a changing workforce. For the first time in history, five generations are coexisting at work, from Traditionalists (those born before 1946) to Generation Z, people born after 1996. Millennial employees — born between 1981 and 1996 — already make up more than 30 percent of the American labor force. They value things like flexibility, technology, and sustainability at work — driving companies across industries to rethink how and where work happens.
