DETROIT, Mich. (Indiana's NewsCenter) - The automaker is hiring an estimated 1,500 people to staff a new computer technology center near Detroit. GM officials will shift the work from outside firms and plans to open four new tech centers in the U.S.

Last month, executives announced that 500 people would be hired for a center in Texas. The goal is to bring 90% of information technology in house. Mangers believe this move will make the company more efficient.

As many as 10,000 people could be hired in the next three to five years.
