The company plans to roll out a new performance management system that will give managers the power to lay off thousands of employees starting early next year. Therefore, managers are asked to select 6% (instead of the usual 2%) of Alphabet employees with low labor indicators. We’re talking about 10,000 people working for the company.

It is well known that employees with the lowest rating are forced to leave the company. In addition, the rating system can be used to limit incentive privileges and/or be considered in employee compensation.

In a letter to Alphabet, British billionaire Christopher Hohn, who speaks on behalf of hedge fund TCI and owns $6 billion in Alphabet assets, said the company has too many employees compared to previous hiring patterns and the number of employees not consistent with the existing business situation. He also lamented that employees are overpaid compared to the salaries of other tech giants’ employees and the company can make do with far fewer highly paid specialists.
