CLEVELAND — As a multinational corporation, General Motors has its sights on the future with lofty goals of zero crashes, zero emissions and zero congestion while becoming the most inclusive workplace in the world.
One of the ways it plans to do this is by casting a wide net when hiring.
“There's zero doubt in my mind that if someone is potentially looking for a company to join, they want to make sure that the company that they're going to join is doing something for the world, and has a purpose,” said Adam Yeloushan, General Motors HR Director of Global Engineering.
Right now, there’s a push to hire 3,000 people in engineering, design and information technology for remote tech jobs by the end of 2021’s first quarter.
“Electrical system engineers, infotainment software engineers, developers for Java, Android, iOS, other platforms, controls engineers, you know, the list goes on. It's all those kind of roles,” said Yeloushan.
General Motors is headquartered in Detroit, Michigan, but has a large footprint.
“We really do have the opportunity to go after candidates that maybe for personal reasons, family reasons, whatever don’t want to relocate to one of our hubs and that’s OK because we can put them to work doing coding, software activities, whatever, in different places all around the United States,” said Yeloushan.
Remote work isn’t new for General Motors, but the company is now offering more remote opportunities than ever before.
Yeloushan says it's all in an effort to adapt to the times and recruit the best talent.
Despite the pandemic, General Motors has been profitable. That’s allowing the company to invest $27 billion into electric vehicle development.
The goal is to offer 30 all-electric models by 2025.
“All of this is part of that. The developing the EV vehicles, the autonomous solutions, all the connected services, and we need the human resources in order to power all that,” said Yeloushan.
