Google signs up for the ‘tech’ cut and announces the dismissal of 12,000 people

Date: June 10, 2023 Time: 13:00:25

Google’s central parent, Alphanet, has announced that it will cut approximately 12,000 jobs across its global workforce. This figure represents 6% of the workers who are under the direction of the internet giant. However, these cuts are necessary to solve the economic weaknesses of the market, as confirmed by the CEO of the company, Sundar Pichai.

In this way, the giant from Mountain View (United States) joins the wave of massive layoffs in the US technology sector due to the worse conditions of the economy and the increase in costs, after the announcement this week by Microsoft of the cut in about 10,000 jobs and that Amazon began to communicate the departure of about 18,000 workers.

“We have decided to reduce our workforce by approximately 12,000 positions,” Pichai said, stating that the company has already contacted the affected employees by email in the United States, while, in other countries, “this process will take longer due to laws and local practices.

The executive explained that in the last two years the multinational had undertaken a hiring policy “to equalize and feed” the spectacular growth experienced in that period. “We hire for a different economic reality than the one we face today,” he acknowledged.

In this sense, it has specified that the roles reflect the result of a rigorous review carried out in all areas and functions to ensure that it responds to the main priorities of the company and “cover Alphabet, product areas, functions, levels and regions ” .
