Under the shadow of Google’s employee fear, why the company is again expressing the possibility of layoffs, know

Google Lay off Threat: As big tech companies begin laying off employees in the global economic downturn, Google executives are reportedly warning workers to either boost performance or quit if the next quarter’s earnings aren’t good. Make preparations. In a company message seen by Insider, Google Cloud Sales Leadership threatened employees with an “overall test of sales productivity and productivity in general” and to face consequences if next quarter’s results “do not show up”.

Google employees ‘afraid of layoffs’
As The New York Post reports, Google employees are “afraid of layoffs” as the company quietly extended its hiring freeze this month without any announcement. The company has now reportedly warned employees of layoffs if they do not produce results. Alphabet and Google CEO Sundar Pichai told employees late last month that they should improve productivity in the face of dire economic constraints.

What Google CEO Sundar Pichai said
Sundar Pichai said he wanted to solicit ideas from his employees on how to get “better results faster”. He was quoted as saying, “There are real concerns that overall our productivity is not where we need to be for head count.” Google suspended hiring for two weeks in July to review its headcount requirements and decide on future course of action. The company had earlier announced to slow down hiring for the rest of the year.

Google’s revenue growth is coming down
According to Pichai, “It is clear that we are facing a challenging macro environment with more uncertainty ahead.” Google’s parent company Alphabet reported weaker-than-expected earnings and revenue for the April-June period (Q2). Revenue growth declined to 13 per cent from 62 per cent in the same quarter last year.

Other technology companies are also doing layoffs
Other tech companies that have either laid off employees or slowed hiring in the current economic downturn include LinkedIn, Meta, Oracle, Twitter, Nvidia, Snap, Uber, Spotify, Intel and Salesforce.
