According to reports, Google fires 6 percent of underperforming employees. According to a prior story, Google intends to fire up to 10,000 employees soon. In the first half of 2023, Amazon is also anticipated to fire thousands of people.
Many employees may be let go in the first quarter of 2023, it seems. 6% of employees are expected to fall into the low-performing group under the new performance rating system the company established, according to reports. Some sources claim that the dominant search engine company plans to let go of workers based on performance reviews. Here is all we know at this time.
Just last week, a meeting was held at Google to evaluate the performance of the workforce. Google expects that 6% of its full-time employees will fall into the category of low performers, placing them “at risk for corrective action,” according to people with knowledge of the issue.
There have been ongoing rumours about layoffs, so it’s probable that these people will soon be fired.
This is conceivable in light of a recent The Information article saying that Google plans to fire 10,000 employees, or 6% of the workforce, based on performance. The company is assessing employee performance using a new methodology. According to the cited source, a worker must have “achieved the almost impossible” and contributed “more than we (Google) anticipated possible” if they want to be in the highest-rated group.
Google anticipates that 22% of its workers will belong to one of the two highest groupings, according to reports. According to the report, a number of employees have complained about procedural and technological issues with the new performance system. Despite the fact that the world’s largest search engine has not yet made any statements on its layoff plans, executives are claimed to have previously stated that a small number of job losses will happen in the near future.
In addition, it is anticipated that there won’t be any layoffs at Google alone in 2023. Amazon has previously stated that it will continue to lay off employees in 2019. Although we don’t have the exact number, sources claim that the company plans to let go of up to 20,000 employees.
