Google parent Alphabet planning to cut 12,000 jobs globally: report

Alphabet, Google’s parent company, plans to cut 12,000 jobs equating to over 6% of its global workforce, according to multiple reports on Friday. Chief Executive Sundar

Pichai sent an email to employees on Friday, saying he takes “full responsibility for the decisions that led us here,” Bloomberg reported. “These are important moments

to sharpen our focus, re-engineer our cost base, and direct our talent and capital to our highest priorities,” Pichai added. The Wall Street Journal reported the job

reductions will span across the Alphabet units and will affect jobs globally. Alphabet could be the latest tech firm to scale back its workforce, after Amazon Meta

Platforms Twitter and Microsoft slashed their head counts recently. Alphabet stock was up over 1% in premarket Friday trading. MarketWatch has reached out to
