Why Google’s Decision to Cut 12,000 Jobs is a Necessary Step for the Company’s Future Growth

Google Layoff  Approximate 12000 Employees

Google is facing difficult times as the company has announced plans to cut around 12,000 jobs. This decision was made as a result of the rising inflation and global economic uncertainty caused by the ongoing pandemic. The layoffs will impact employees across various departments, levels, and regions within the company. This move comes as the latest in a series of job cuts by technology firms as they grapple with the economic impact of the pandemic. Google will continue to focus on its core priorities and invest in areas such as artificial intelligence and cloud computing to drive future growth. The company understands that this decision will have a significant impact on its employees and will do everything in its power to support them during this difficult time.

While the affected employees in the US who received the termination letter will be let go immediately, the process will be lengthier for staff based outside US in compliance with local laws and practices. In the memo shared by Pichai, the severance package for US-based employees was described in detail.
