Google Is Laying Off Hundreds Of Employees In Its Hiring Department

According to CNBC, Google will be eliminating hundreds of positions in its worldwide hiring department over the course of the upcoming quarters.

In a video discussion with staff members on Wednesday, Brian Ong, Google’s vice president of recruiting, said, “We sadly need to significantly reduce the size of the recruiting organisation.” CNBC was able to secure a recording of the meeting.

Ong said, “It wasn’t something that was simple to decide, and it’s absolutely not a conversation any of us wanted to have again this year. It’s the proper course of action overall, especially given the base of hiring we’ll be receiving throughout the ensuing quarters.

Ong stated that starting on Wednesday, emails will be sent to the employees involved in the recruiting group cutbacks.

Alphabet-owned Google stated in January that it was eliminating 12,000 employees, or about 6% of the full-time staff. The entire organisation, including Google’s recruitment department, was affected by the layoffs. Alphabet reported a 7% gain in second-quarter revenue, which was higher than analysts anticipated, while Google has been actively cutting costs since last year.
