  • Microsoft (MSFT -2.8%) is “considering a multi-billion dollar revamp” of its Redmond HQ meant to “foster more collaboration among employees and attract young engineers,” Bloomberg reports. High-profile architecture firm Skidmore Owings has reportedly been hired.
  • Microsoft currently has ~80 buildings in Redmond covering about 500 acres. Bloomberg’s report follows multiple reorgs meant to break down barriers between different product teams and make a certain org chart cartoon an anachronism. Apple and Google are both in the midst of creating new HQs.
  • Separately, Microsoft has bought VoloMetrix, a provider of analytics software for gauging the performance of a company’s workers and sales teams. Microsoft plans to integrate VoloMetrix with Office 365’s Delve organizational analytics and content discovery service.
