In China, Google has begun to lay off employees. According to reports, the company’s objective is to reset the salary standard, reduce operating costs, and improve overall work efficiency.
According to the report, the benefits, which include stock, a discount on annual leave, $4,339 in cash, and medical insurance, can only be obtained by signing the agreement to leave the company before March 10, 2023. In addition, Google has provided laid-off employees with a three-month buffer period during which they will continue to receive normal pay.
Google’s parent company, Alphabet, recently laid off 12,000 employees and even 100 robots that cleaned its headquarters cafeterias. The organization fired around 400 workers in India as a feature of the worldwide declaration.
In a letter, Google CEO Sundar Pichai confirmed that approximately 12,000 people worldwide would be laid off, or more than 6% of the company’s workforce. To express their feelings, a number of Google employees took to social media, particularly LinkedIn.
Sundar Pichai, said that that he is deeply sorry for reducing the workforce and denied that the layoffs were carried out randomly. Sundar Pichai added that he accepts full responsibility for the decisions that led the company here.
In light of the global slowdown and fears of a recession, companies of all sizes have been affected by the worsening funding crisis, and the layoffs at Google’s parent company were anticipated.
