Reuters – Amazon.com Inc is planning to split its second headquarters evenly between two locations rather than picking one city, the Wall Street Journal reported on Monday (November 5), citing a person familiar with the matter.
The retailer previously announced a planned investment of $5 billion and 50,000 jobs for the second headquarters.
Under the new plan, the e-commerce giant will split the workforce with 25,000 employees in each city. The company’s motive behind the decision is recruiting enough tech talent, the report said.
A decision and announcement could come as soon as this week, according to the newspaper.
The WSJ reported on Sunday that Seattle-based Amazon was in advanced talks with Dallas, New York, the Crystal City area of northern Virginia and a few other candidates for the location of its second headquarters.
