In the past few weeks, many prominent US-based tech companies like Meta, Twitter, and Amazon, among others, have laid off thousands of employees as they are on a mission to downsize.
Now, another big tech giant ‘Alphabet’, the parent company of Google, is said to be in plans to fire nearly 10,000 employees, in order to downsize.
As per reports, the managers at Google have been asked to analyse and rank the ‘poor performing’ employees. The firm is reportedly prepared to let go of 6 percent of its employees. It will use a ranking system and the lowest-ranked candidates are said to be fired from the organisation.
Alphabet currently has around 1,87,000 employees, making it one of the most powerful employers in the tech industry.
