General Motors said it has begun recruiting 3,000 new employees to strengthen its software engineering and development capabilities.
It will be primarily about vacancies in the field of engineering, design and information technology. The recruitment of new employees is expected to accelerate the development of electric vehicles.
"We are in a transitional phase that began at the very end of 2018," Ken Morris, GM's Vice President of Electric and Autonomous Vehicles, said through his press service. "We are moving towards our future with electric vehicles. This will help we move faster ".
In 2018, GM announced a major restructuring that closed three factories and laid off 8,000 workers, many of whom worked on vehicles with an internal combustion engine, recalls Bloomberg. The company said at the time that it intends to hire other engineers to develop 20 electric vehicle models by 2023.
