General Motors said it has begun recruiting 3,000 new employees to strengthen its design and software development capabilities.
This will focus on vacancies in engineering, design and information technology. Recruitment of new employees is expected to accelerate the development of electric vehicles.
“We are in a transition phase that began at the very end of 2018,” said Ken Morris, GM’s vice president of electric and standalone vehicles, through the press office. – We are moving towards our future with electric vehicles. This will help us move faster.
In 2018, GM announced a major restructuring that included closing three plants and downsizing 8,000 specialists, many of whom were working on combustion engine vehicles, Bloomberg recalls. The company announced then that it would hire other engineers to develop 20 models of electric vehicles by 2023.
