US automaker giant General Motors announced on Monday that it would hire 3,000 employees across its design, IT and engineering divisions in order to increase diversity and contribute to its electric car platform. 

The company said that the hiring is expected to take place from now, through the first quarter of next year.

“This will clearly show that we’re committed to further developing the software we need to lead in electric vehicles,” General Motors President Mark Reuss said in a statement.

General Motors’ Chief Executive Mary Barra told CNN Business last week that the automaker will boost capital spending over the next three years in order to speed up development of electric vehicles.

On Twitter, CNN’s Xabier Serbia said that “General Motors’ intentions of speeding up the development of EVs show how the biggest automakers in the world are going green. What everyone expects is this to be the common denominator in people’s lives in a couple of decades.”
