GM CIO calls HP hiring probe a 'fishing expedition'

Patrick Thibodeau | Jan. 11, 2013
General Motors CIO Randy Mott Thursday said the automaker plans to have the "best jobs in the IT industry" at its four "IT Innovation Centers" in the U.S. At the same time, Mott criticized Hewlett-Packard's move to contest GM's hiring of some HP IT managers to work at the centers.

For instance, GM's site selection criteria calls for locating in areas that have 10 to 12 universities nearby, as well as deep pools of technical talent at all skill levels and years of experience.

The locations it has picked "are great places to live and work," said Mott.

The type of employee that GM is seeking is "a student of the business," and "someone with a passion to learn. A perpetual student who applies technology to innovate business processes and deliver solutions that enable our business counterparts to be successful," Mott said.
