Statement from IBM Rochester:
A statement from: Tory Johnson, Vice President of Supply Chain Engineering, and Senior Location Executive for IBM in Rochester, MN
As part of IBM's ongoing transformation as a cognitive computing and cloud platform company, IBM in Rochester is focused on increased collaboration and innovation, creating work spaces to enable this. To support these efforts, we plan to sell our excess Rochester real estate holdings to an outside developer and bring all IBMers together over the next year into eight buildings on the east side of the campus. These moves will involve no personnel changes other than their relocation within the site, and the move should be completed by March of 2017.
We have begun to redesign and reconfigure office spaces for agile work and collaboration that can better facilitate teamwork and idea generation. This will drive faster innovation, create an even better environment for our employees and result in a win for IBM and our clients.
