We explore Hoffman’s previous work at Cruise, and why she’ll be a great fit for GM.
Arden Hoffman is leaving Cruise for GM
Still, GM is looking forward to Hoffman’s arrival, with CEO Mary Barra stating that Hoffman’s “deep background leading the HR function for fast-growing global tech companies makes her the right leader to continue that momentum and deliver our future talent portfolio."
She may be up to the task, but what sort of challenges are waiting for Hoffman when she arrives at GM?
Hoffman will have to wrangle new workplace policies at GM
But four days later, an update went explaining that no changes would happen until at least 2023. GM isn’t the only car company coming under fire for forcing employees back into the office, as Tesla’s own Elon Musk has received plenty of criticism for cracking the whip on Tesla workers, too.
Why is Hoffman leaving Cruise?
GM’s CEO also praised Hoffman for creating a “high-performance culture where Cruisers can do their best work."
Hoffman has a high-profile resume as well, having worked as the Vice President of people at Dropbox, where, with her assistance, the company transformed from a private startup to a publicly traded company. Hoffman has also worked in roles at Google and Goldman Sachs.
