General Motors is in the midst of some tough times. In November, the company said it would eliminate 30,000 manufacturing jobs in the U.S. and Canada by 2008. Yet, in spite of the cutbacks, the company is talking about expanding a program it calls JumpStart. The program has been around for six years, and has the goal of initiating new hires into GM's culture and giving them exposure to important business leaders. Cheri Alexander, executive director of global human resources says the vision of the program is to build enthusiasm for the company in new-hires in order to help them to become productive more quickly.
