Google is going to continue laying off employees this year also. The CEO of the company has given this information to the employees in an internal memo. However, like last year, the layoffs are not going to be on a large scale, nor is it going to affect all the teams. The impact of layoffs will be limited to a few teams of the company. According to the report, a Google spokesperson said that a memo in this regard has been sent to the employees.
Google says that it is going to make a big investment this year which will include its main priorities. Last week, Google had said that it was going to lay off many employees from its voice assistant units. Apart from this, layoffs will also be done in the hardware team, which works for Pixel, Nest and Fitbit. Also, advertising sales team can also be included in this layoff.
The process of layoffs has been going on for a long time in tech giant companies like Google, Microsoft, Amazon. There have been several layoffs in Google too last year.

By September 2023, the company had fired 1,82,381 employees. This trend is going to continue in 2024 also.
