After Twitter, Amazon, Google CEO Sundar Pichai Says Alphabet Will Lay Off 12,000 Employees


After massive layoffs reported from Amazon and Twitter, Google CEO Sundar Pichai in an email confirmed that the company’s parent Alphabet will lay off as many as 12,000 jobs. The development comes amid daily reports of tech giants laying off workforce due to economic uncertainty and increasing concerns about another period of grueling recession.

After years of exponential growth and a never-ending cycle of hiring and recruiting, Google has joined slew of companies that have recently conducted massive layoffs or made announcement of doing so in near future. In his email, Pichai confirmed that the layoffs will be on global level, and added that he is “deeply sorry” for the situation.

The development comes after it was reported that Google is delaying bonuses for its employees. “I have some difficult news to share. We’ve decided to reduce our workforce by approximately 12,000 roles. We’ve already sent a separate email to employees in the US who are affected. In other countries, this process will take longer due to local laws and practices,” Pichai in his email said.

“I am confident about the huge opportunity in front of us thanks to the strength of our mission”, Pichai said, adding that the job cuts will be “across Alphabet, product areas, functions, levels and regions”.
