Article by Anita Panait, on January 11, 2013

Ford Motor Co. will employ 2,200 salaried workers in 2013 in the United States to boost its workforce to handle rising sales and production in North America. According to Ford, the hiring increase is the largest in salaried workers in more than a decade. The salaried workers will be fielded to product development, manufacturing and information technology.

In 2012, Ford hired 8,100 hourly and salaried workers to increase production capacity and expanded engineering, manufacturing and other areas. Ford disclosed that it ended 2012 with 28,000 white-collar employees in North America, most of them in the US. Ford's salaried payrolls in North America dropped to 25,000 workers in 2009. By the end of 2006, Ford's salaried workforce in North America was 38,600.

The carmaker built around 2.7 million vehicles in North America in 2012, reflecting a 4-percent hike over 2011, according to the Automotive News Data Center. Ford posted a 5-percent hike in sales in the US in 2012 to 2.24 million vehicles. Ford remarked that it is more than halfway to hiring 12,000 hourly workers in the US by 2015 – a commitment embedded in its 2011 deal with the UAW.

Ford will beef up its use of social media sites like Twitter, Facebook and Linkedin to draw "new, technology-savvy workers." The carmaker will recruit military veterans more aggressively. According to Ford, those who "like" the Ford Careers Facebook page and follow Ford Careers on Twitter will get regular updates about job opportunities. All salaried job openings at Ford are posted on the Ford Careers Web site, careers.ford.com.
