Sundar Pichai says Google has too many employees but too little work, issues warning

It seems that Google CEO Sundar Pichai is unhappy with the performance of many employees. The executive held a meeting and warned their employees to work efficiently and focus more on how to better improve their products and help customers. Pichai thinks productivity is lacking and not where it should be given the number of employees at Google. This basically suggests that the CEO feels that Google has too many employees, but few of them work efficiently and are focused.

A report of CNBC says Pichai has instructed employees to “create a more mission-driven, more product-driven, more customer-driven culture. We should think about how we can minimize distractions and really raise the bar for product excellence and productivity. »

This news comes just days after Google announced that the second quarter of 2022 was “weaker than expected” in terms of profits and revenue, which was also the case with the first quarter. The quoted source indicates that the software giant reportedly recorded 13% less growth in this quarter compared to last year.

Just recently, the search giant wants to “review staffing needs and align with a new set of priority staffing requests for the next three months.” This suggests that the company may soon be laying off some employees due to lack of efficiency and productivity, skills and, of course, cost cutting.

The announcement came just weeks after the company said it would slow down the hiring process, which apparently will continue for the rest of the year. Several large tech companies have either laid off hundreds of employees or slowed hiring for fear of an impending recession.
