Google Announces Layoffs, Shifts “Core” Team Positions Overseas to Cut Costs

In a strategic move aimed at cost reduction and organizational restructuring, Google has initiated layoffs affecting nearly 200 employees from its “core team.” The tech giant has reportedly terminated at least 50 roles within its engineering division based at the company’s headquarters in California, opting to relocate some positions overseas, particularly in India and Mexico.

The decision to streamline its workforce comes amidst Google’s ongoing efforts to optimize operations and enhance efficiency. According to internal documents obtained by CNBC, the company intends to fill vacancies in high-growth global workforce locations, aligning its operations closer to key partners and developer communities.

The layoffs were announced last week via an email from Asim Husain, Vice President of Google Developer Ecosystem. Husain acknowledged that this reduction marked the largest workforce cut within his team, emphasizing the company’s commitment to maintaining a global presence while expanding in strategic regions.

“We intend to maintain our current global footprint while also expanding in high-growth global workforce locations so that we can operate closer to our partners and developer communities,” stated Husain in the email.

Addressing concerns regarding the impacted employees, a Google spokesperson assured that affected workers would have the opportunity to apply for other open roles within the company. The spokesperson emphasized Google’s focus on fostering innovation and prioritizing key initiatives while streamlining organizational structures to reduce bureaucracy and layers.

This recent round of layoffs adds to Alphabet’s ongoing workforce reductions initiated in early 2023. At that time, the parent company of Google announced plans to cut approximately 12,000 positions, constituting roughly 6% of its total workforce. The move underscores Alphabet’s broader strategic objectives to optimize operations and drive sustainable growth in a rapidly evolving tech landscape.

As Google navigates these organizational changes, industry observers closely monitor the company’s trajectory, anticipating how these initiatives will shape its future direction and competitive positioning in the global market.
