Company shifts to new working environment.
GoDaddy (NYS: GDDY) is closing its Scottsdale headquarters as it consolidates offices in Arizona. It will transfer employees in the Scottsdale office to its new headquarters in Tempe and its Gilbert office.
The change does not involve any reduction to GoDaddy’s Arizona employee roles and the company stresses that it’s actively hiring in the area.
GoDaddy says it’s making the move because it anticipates a hybrid work model in the future. The company says it’s moving to a “Hub-Club-Home” model where some employees work full-time in an office (Hub), some work part of the week in an office (Club), and others will work exclusively from home.
In a statement, Calvin Crowder, GoDaddy’s Vice President of Global Real Estate, said:
We are moving into a new era of work, as people generally desire more work flexibility. As part of our new, hybrid work model, we understand our offices will be used less, but with more intentionality – to meet, collaborate and connect with one another. The office will continue to be an essential place for our people to come together. We are proud of our strong presence in Arizona and will continue to invest in our people and workplaces.”
The move will begin in May and should conclude by the end of July.
GoDaddy expects to begin to reopen its Arizona offices later his year, starting on a voluntary basis.
