The company announced in October that it was moving 3,000 HP staff to its employment

according to reports.

The company chose the locations for its centers based on the availability of talent locally. The four centers have access to more than 7,000 students at over 150 colleges and universities majoring in IT related fields, it said. Four of five students majoring in IT at higher education institutions in each state are within a three-hour drive from a GM IT center.

Staff at the centers will support GM's IT needs, including web technologies, end-user applications and systems, dealer systems, factory systems and vehicle technology.

The new Arizona center is expected to be operational by first quarter of 2014. GM plans to start from a temporary building in April until the permanent facility at Chandler is completed.
