North Face parent-company VF Corporation preparing for big move to Denver
The Denver Post
Of the 800 high-paying jobs that apparel holding company VF Corporation plans to relocate to Denver from around the country starting this summer, about half may require new hires.
“We do expect to have a lot of people move, but not everyone,” Anita Graham, the company’s chief human resources officer, said Wednesday while in Denver for the Outdoor Retailer and Snow Show.
The company is doing its best to get as many of its current employees to relocate as it can, Graham said. State and metro Denver economic development offices have come into VF offices to make their pitch. The company has also hired a relocation service and is paying to fly employees and their families out to Colorado to check things out and talk to real estate agents.
“A lot of people who have taken trips have given good reports,” Graham said. Access to the outdoors and the restaurant scene are among the items mentioned often.
