VF Outdoor is now one of the top ten largest private sector employers in the City of Alameda, housing more than 470 employees at the new campus.
“I’m thrilled to welcome our VF Outdoor associates to our new home in Alameda. Today culminates nearly four years of thoughtful design and planning. Our new campus reflects our team’s unique culture and passion for the outdoors,” said Steve Rendle, Group President of VF Outdoor and Action Sports Americas.
“VF Outdoor includes many of VF’s fastest-growing businesses and the co-location of the JanSport, lucy and The North Face brands at one central campus will lead to even greater product innovation, collaboration and business growth.”
“In planning the new headquarters, we drew heavily on employee input, relying on a group of employee-led taskforces to consult on the campus’ design,” Rendle added. “As a result, several features were incorporated in the campus, including:
The new headquarters was built to foster collaboration and innovation across the brands that now operate out of the Alameda campus. Specific attention was paid to details that would break down the boundaries between individual brands and encourage employees to share ideas and resources. In addition to a centrally located café that will bring together employees from JanSport, lucy and The North Face at meals, the “Yurt Advanced Product Lab” will serve all three brands as a hub for cross-brand collaboration that leverages the individual strengths of each brand.
“At VF, we focus heavily on maximizing resources to develop new products that will exceed our customers’ expectations. As a result, we push the boundaries of collaboration and research,” said Eric Wiseman, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of VF Corporation.
“The VF Outdoor Alameda headquarters exemplifies our dedication to providing cutting-edge work environments that allow our associates to pool their passion and expertise to create the next generation of industry-leading apparel, footwear and outdoor equipment that our customers have come to expect from us.”
