Google slows hiring for 2022, Sundar Pichai’s note

In a note obtained by The Verge, Sundar Pichai addresses the Googlers for “Thank everyone for the great work done so far this year” and explain what the goals for the second half of the year will be. Pichai immediately speaks of “Uncertain global economic prospects”, explaining that “like other companies, we are not immune to these winds”.

Explain that only in the second quarter “aWe added about ten thousand Googlers”And that in the next they have already signed several contracts that will become active. But “given the hiring progress achieved so far this year, we will slow down the pace of hiring for the rest of the year, pur supporting our most important opportunities “.

Pichai then pointed out that in 2022-2023 they focused on hiring engineers, technicians and other critical roles. But moving forward “we need to be more entrepreneurial, working with greater urgency, a more concentrated focus and more hunger than we have shown on the sunniest days “.

Finally, he explains that in some cases it will be a question of optimizing processes, avoiding having double roles in the company and simplifying internal processes. In others to put “pause development and redistribute resources in areas of highest priority “.

Google isn’t the first company to make similar speeches with Spotify, Snap e Meta who announced slowdowns in hiring. Preparing for the economic problems that seem to be on the horizon.
