GM Uses High Tech Tools to Attract and Hire Young Talents

The auto giant, GM, is now needing lots and lots of new workers in their plant. They are trying to attract younger workers but they seem to be not interested because of their impressions that factory work is dingy and dull.

There are actually 70,000 unfilled manufacturing jobs in Michigan alone now for some reasons. Maybe because new job hunters want jobs that has titles with it.

This is why General Motors is now experimenting new ways to attract young talents to apply in this unfilled positions with innovative and new tools such as the cool Google Glass and etc. The auto giant is now trying this tool in one of its plants located in Orion Township to see what results could it bring or what developments will it show. All the plans were explained by General Motors new Vice President for North American manufacturing, Cathy Clegg, during the Center for Automotive Research Management Briefing Seminar.

Another tool that the auto manufacturer is trying out is the 3D laser scanners. This tool will help the company analyze and improve the layouts of the plant. The company also gathered employees from their other factories and divisions to meet and discuss new ideas that might come up.

With the US economy showing improvements, Automotive companies are also expecting an increase of sales in the coming years. This will be a challenge that the auto giant will have to compete together with the young talents that they will hire.
