BP shifts 200 jobs to Chicago from suburbs

BP shifts 200 jobs to Chicago from suburbs

BP is moving about 200 employees from its Naperville campus to its offices downtown, spokesman Mike Abendhoff said Friday.

After the shift, which will begin in late March or early April, there will be about 900 employees at the oil company's 30 S. Wacker Drive location, he said.

BP is moving the employees — including the entire U.S. pipeline logistics team and workers in finance and human resources positions — in an effort to be more efficient, Abendhoff said.

About 1,400 employees will remain at the Naperville campus, home to a BP research facility, Abendhoff said.

"It's still going to be a large hub for us," he said.
