Ford plans to hire 2,200 salaried workers this year
Ford Motor Company says it will hire 2,200 salaried workers this year.
It's the company's largest single-year increase of salaried workers in more than a decade.
Joe Hinrichs, Ford's President of the Americas, says the company doesn't anticipate trouble finding the right kind of people.
That's in contrast to before the recession when car companies sometimes couldn't find enough people interested in a career in the auto industry.
"Look at the types of technology you get to work on now, the vehicle is becoming so advanced, with computers, with software, with voice recognition, with sensors, that we are attracting a level of interest in people because of what's happening with the product itself becoming far more advanced," said Hinrichs.
Ford has about 28,500 salaried workers in North America.
