Chevron Brings 100 Jobs to Houston
During a period where numerous job cuts have been reported in Houston, Chevron Corporation will be ushering in 100 jobs to Houston.
The result of a Bay Area location review in 2013, the California-based company scheduled 400 positions to be relocated in corporate human resource functions by 2018, according to an emailed statement to Rigzone from a Chevron spokesperson.
Based on business needs and office space availability, Chevron has expedited the 100 job relocations to Houston which will occur in late 2015.
“These moves are not associated with job reductions. They are designed to ensure that employee resources are appropriately positioned to support business needs,” the spokesperson stated in the release. “While Chevron is committed to creating jobs and economic growth in Houston, our corporate headquarters is and will remain located in California.”
Chevron has recently been dealing with significant cost reductions as a result of plunging crude oil prices.
