General MotorsCase Study Strategic planningChris Simeone & Hakeem HistoryGeneral Motors was capitalized by William C. Durant on September 16, 1908 as a holding company. The next day it purchased Buick Motor Company, and rapidly acquired more than twenty companies including Oldsmobile, Cadillac, Oakland, now known as Pontiac, and McLaughlin of Canada.1918 also saw personnel increase at GM. The number of employees grew from about 49,000 workers to 85,000 workers. Many came from the South of the United States, as well as from Europe, to work at GM Michigan facilities. To accommodate them, GM began to build employee housing with the nearly $2.5 million set aside for the project. This would become one of General Motors top 5 expenditures for the year 1919. 1919 also brought changes to employee investment opportunities. Similar to modern day 401(k) plans, all employees could invest a percentage of their wages or salary. GM proceeded to match every penny that their employees invested.By 1935, GM was the largest producer of vehicles in the world. and by 1940 it had produced 25 million cars. In 1949, GM president Charles Wilson signed “The Treaty of Detroit,” an agreement with the United Auto Workers that guaranteed pensions and other long-term benefits for the company’s thousands of workers.In 1980, the company posted its first financial loss in 60 years, and it continued to struggle financially through the ’80s, ’90s and 2000s.In December 2008, it received a bailout from the federal government, which began to oversee the company’s finances. History ContinuedOn June 1, 2009, after heavy losses, General Motors went bankrupt. Stockholders lost essentially all of their investment.On July 10, 2009, General Motors emerged from government backed Chapter 11 reorganization after an initial filing on June 8, 2009.Through the Troubled Asset Relief Program the US Treasury invested $49.5 billion in General Motors and recovered $39 billion when it sold its shares on December 9, 2013 resulting in a loss of $10.3 billion. The Treasury invested an additional $17.2 billion into GM's former financing company, GMAC (now Ally). The shares in Ally were sold on December 18, 2014 for $19.6 billion netting $2.4 billion. A study by the Center for Automotive Research found that the GM bailout saved 1.2 million jobs and preserved $34.9 billion in tax revenue.Also in 2009 as part General Motors Chapter 11 Bankruptcy, the company shed several brands, closing Saturn, Pontiac, and Hummer, while selling Saab Automobile to Dutch automaker Spyker, and emerged from a government-backed Chapter 11 reorganization. In 2010, the reorganized GM made an initial public offering that was one of the world's top five largest IPOs to date and returned to profitability later that year.General Motors led global vehicle sales for 77 consecutive years from 1931 through 2007, longer than any other automaker, and in 2012 was among the world's largest automakers by vehicle unit sales.General Motors employs 181,000 people and does business in more than 140 countries across 23 time zones.General Motors produces vehicles in 37 countries under twelve brands: Chevrolet, Buick, GMC, Cadillac, Holden, HSV, Wuling, Baojun, Jie Fang, and Ravon.

The union was met with stiff resistance from GM to settle contracts. GM’s Earnings SolutionsCustomer SatisfactionEarning customers for life is the foundational promise of General Motors.
