Google, one of the world’s most prominent tech giants, is reportedly gearing up for another round of layoffs. According to sources, the company is expected to cut jobs in its cloud computing division.
However, in a recent interview, Google CEO Sundar Pichai has refuted these rumors. He stated that while the company is always looking for ways to improve and streamline its operations, there are no immediate plans for layoffs.
Pichai went on to say that Google’s cloud division has been performing well and has experienced significant growth over the past few years. He emphasized that the company is committed to investing in this area and expanding its offerings to customers.
Despite Pichai’s reassurances, some industry experts remain skeptical. They point to the fact that Google has a history of making significant job cuts during times of economic uncertainty. In 2020, for instance, the company laid off more than 1,000 workers due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Moreover, Google has been facing increased competition from rival companies such as Amazon and Microsoft in the cloud computing space. This has led some analysts to speculate that the company may need to make cuts in order to remain competitive.
For now, however, Pichai remains steadfast in his commitment to growing Google’s cloud division. He stated that the company has a strong foundation and is well-positioned to continue its success in this area.
