General Motors – number of employees

General Motors, also known as GM, is the manufacturer of some of the oldest car brands worldwide, including Chevrolet, Cadillac and Buick. During the 2017 fiscal year, General Motors generated sales and revenue streams of around 146 billion U.S. dollars. This amount is lower than the 2016 figure, before the PSA Group acquired GM's Opel and Vauxhall businesses. Almost two thirds of all GM vehicles worldwide were sold in regions outside the automaker’s home market, while a little over 37 percent was sold in North America.

GM sold some 9.6 million vehicles in 2017, trailing its main competitors, Volkswagen, Toyota and the Renault-Nissan alliance, with a sales tally of more ten million vehicles each. In 2016, Toyota and Volkswagen both had a higher employee base than General Motors: Toyota had around 349,000 employees in 2016. In 2018, the company announced that it would undergo a staff transformation: 15 percent of salaried and salaried contract staff are to be reduced.
