This information comes out shortly after Google stated that the second quarter of 2022’s profitability and revenue were “weaker than expected,” which was the case with the first quarter as well.
• Google is asking for more efficiency and concentration from its staff.
• The company just declared that it is suspending hiring for at least two weeks.
• In the second quarter of 2022, Google reported lower earnings and sales.
It appears that Sundar Pichai, the CEO of Google, is dissatisfied with the work output of many employees. The management called a meeting and urged the staff to work quickly and concentrate more on ways to support customers and improve their offerings. In Pichai’s opinion, productivity at Google is lacking and below where it ought to be given the size of the company.
This essentially implies that the CEO believes Google has too many employees who do not work effectively or with focus. Pichai allegedly encouraged staff members to “build a culture that is more mission-oriented, more focused on our products, and more focused on our customers.” We should consider ways to cut down on interruptions and significantly improve both output and product quality.
This information comes just days after Google stated that the second quarter of 2022’s profitability and revenue were “weaker than expected,” which was the case with the first quarter as well. According to the referenced source, this quarter’s growth for the software giant was down 13% from the same period last year.
Recently, the search giant wants to “evaluate headcount needs and align on a new set to prioritized staffing requests for the next three months.” This signals that the corporation may soon fire some employees due to a lack of talent, productivity, and efficiency, as well as to, of course, save money.
Just a few weeks prior, the company announced that it will slow down the hiring process, which is expected to continue for the rest of the year. Due to the impending recession, the number of major computer companies have either reduced hiring or let hundreds of staff go.
