GM Head of Workforce Strategy Outlines Key Shift in People Strategy

In a recent feature in Automotive News, Tammy Golden, GM’s executive director of diversity, equity and inclusion and head of the automaker’s work force strategy discussed a key shift in a part of GM’s people strategy – General Motors has dropped a four-year degree requirement for many jobs, opting for a skills-based, people-focused hiring process instead. This skills-based focus is similar to the strategy behind the new CmySkills platform that helps technicians connect with shops, based on a two-tier skills matching matrix.

  1. Diversity, Equity & Inclusion consulting integration
  2. Work force innovation
  3. Work force design
