At General Motors, innovation is our north star. As the first automotive company to mass-produce an affordable electric car, and the first to develop an electric starter and air bags, GM has always pushed the limits of engineering.
More so than ever, GM is a purpose-driven company. Part of who we are and why we are here is to serve our customers and improve the communities where we live and work. Our core values put the customer at the center of everything we do, while holding ourselves accountable to the highest standards of excellence. We recognize that our success depends on both internal and external relationships that bring diverse thinking and a collaborative approach to our business.
