The wave of layoffs in the tech industry: Google’s parent company Alphabet is also looking to lay off workers. Company boss Sundar Pichai announced in an email that 12,000 people will be laid off.
Google’s parent company Alphabet, the next heavyweight in the tech industry, is looking to lay off thousands of people. Around 12,000 jobs will be lost worldwide, as company boss Sundar Pichai wrote in an email to employees Friday. This corresponds to about six percent of the workforce.
Pichai noted that non-core businesses will therefore be more affected: they want to adapt their workforce to the group’s core priorities.
Alphabet boss Pichai wrote in the past few years that his company has hired “for an economic reality different from the one we face today.” “I take full responsibility for the decisions that brought us here.”
