HR Happy Hour 327 – Business and HR Transformation at General Motors
Sponsored by Virgin Pulse – www.virginpulse.com
Guest: Michael Arena, Chief Talent Officer, General Motors
This week on the HR Happy Hour Show, hosts Steve Boese and Trish McFarlane are joined by General Motors Chief Talent Officer Michael Arena to talk about GM’s business and HR transformation efforts, a program called ‘GM2020’. On the show Michael shared how GM’s business has had to undergo pretty significant, rapid, and cultural change in response to some dramatic changes and challenges in the automotive industry.
Michael shared how GM’s HR and Talent organizations have had to help the organization meet these challenges by becoming more agile, developing and acquiring new skills and capabilities, and learning where and when to support, foster, and encourage new, innovative ways of thinking – leading to the development and launch of the next generation of great automotive solutions.
We also talked Cadillacs, Corvettes, Buicks, and Chevy Trucks – because c’mon, who doesn’t love those?
