GM to expand in-house technology work

Oct. 8, 2012 at 12:50 PM   |   Comments

DETROIT, Oct. 8 (UPI) -- General Motors said it would expand its information technology programs in Michigan with the addition of 1,500 jobs at a new work center in Warren, Mich.

The Detroit News reported the company and the state were to make a formal announcement Monday, but that Randy Mott, the automaker's vice president of information technology and its chief information officer broke the news Friday.

In addition to the facility that will house 1,500 workers, GM is expected to announce two other technology information programs that will require an additional 500 workers.

The company is expected to invest $300 million the three new centers.

"It's an exciting step, and it's a key element of what we're trying to do to drive innovation and new capabilities for our businesses," said Mott.

Mott also said the long-range plan includes flipping the numbers on outsourcing and in-house workers that GM pays for information technology projects.

GM currently has 1,500 workers involved in information technology work and hires 10,000 outside of the company. The plan calls for bringing the majority of those 10,000 jobs in-house, the newspaper said.
