According to NWA Daily, Tyson Foods has revealed that 1,000 of its corporate positions from its Chicago and Downers Grove, IL, and Dakota Dunes, SD, offices will be relocating to the headquarters in Springdale early next year.
Nearly 1,000 corporate employees are expected to be added to the headquarters. Since there are already nearly 2,000 employees currently working at the site, a home office expansion will take place over the next few years.
The move will likely come along with some new challenges for the NWA area, as well as Tyson, but it will also bring many benefits.
For instance, Tyson will have one corporate office, which will foster a more cohesive workforce. As for Northwest Arkansas in general, the move will bring more jobs, inevitably giving a boost to the local labor market.
