GM to reverse IT outsourcing, hire 3000 Hewlett-Packard workers

The US's General Motors, parent company of GM Holden, has announced that it will hire 3000 workers from Hewlett-Packard.

Packard workers already contribute to projects at GM. GM says that making them salaried will make its move into computer-related operations cheaper and smoother, AAP reports.

“These agreements with HP will enable us to accelerate the progress of our IT transformation by delivering increased innovation and speed of delivery to our GM business partners, and reduce the cost of ongoing IT operations," sais Randy Mott, GM’s chief information officer, in a statement reported by the LA Times and others.

Forbes magazine notes that the move to hire more high-tech staff within the company follows its previous announcement to adopt “insourcing” when it comes to its IT operations.
