USA (bbabo.net), - The American company Google is preparing to fire the 6% of employees with the worst KPI (key performance indicator). About this today, November 24, writes The Information.
According to the publication, a total of 10,000 employees are planned to be laid off. Google representatives declined to comment on possible layoffs.
Recall that Google, like other companies in the sector, actively increased the number of employees during the coronavirus pandemic amid a sharp increase in demand for their services. In turn, this led to an increase in operating costs.
As bbabo.net reported, other IT giants have already announced large-scale staff cuts, including Meta (recognized as an extremist organization in the Russian Federation and banned), HP Inc. and Cisco Systems Inc.
“Layoffs have just begun,” said the head of C3.ai Inc. Thomas Siebel. This applies to both large and small companies. It won't be easy, but when it's all over, the industry will get healthier."
