Workday Plans Major Office Expansion In Pleasanton

ssjm0327workday01In a move that adds to the growing cachet of the Tri-Valley as a major tech hub, Workday is going to add another office building next to their current headquarters near Stoneridge mall.

The new building could house up to 2100 additional employees in 430,000 sq ft on top of the more than 1400 it already employs in over 250,000 sq ft.  More employees working in the Tri-Valley spells more people living, eating, shopping and staying in area hotels.  Needless to say, economic development officials in the area are excited at the prospects or another large tech company presence in the area.

Workday Inc. is a cloud-based human capital management and financial management software vendor.  It was founded by David Duffield, the founder and former CEO of PeopleSoft and former PeopleSoft chief strategist Aneel Bhusri following Oracle’s hostile takeover of PeopleSoft in 2005.  It targets the customers of rivals Oracle and SAP, who also have a major presence in the area.  Stay tuned for more development news in in the Tri-Valley.
