GM will hire 3,000 HP employees

Article by Christian Andrei, on October 19, 2012

As part of General Motors’ plan for most of its information-technology work to return in-house, GM will hire 3,000 HP employees under the new multiyear software and services between the two firms. GM released a statement where it referred to the agreement as \"cost-neutral.\" However, no added information was given on the extent of the contract and on where these workers will be located.

These workers actually already work on GM’s business at HP and will be on GM’s payroll within six months. The companies said that the deal won’t affect an unrevealed number of HP employees presently assigned to GM.

In this statement, Randy Mott, GM\'s chief information officer, said that these deals with HP will allow the company to hasten the progress of its IT transformation by offering increased innovation and speed of delivery to its GM business partners, and cut the cost of ongoing IT operations.

Mott said that by overhauling its internal IT operations, it will get the resources, tools and flexibility it requires to offer improved services and products to its global GM customers.

Mott said GM aims to get savings by using the HP software to automate several tasks, then it will reinvest the savings in ways that promote further innovation. He said GM will then be able to overhaul its IT operations faster by having the workers become direct employees. In a conference call last Thursday, Mott said that the jobs will be “changing pretty rapidly” while the transformation is progressing.
