Google plans to slow hiring for the remainder of the year

Pichai said the company will focus on hiring “engineering, technical and other critical roles,”

Pichai wrote. “In some cases, that means consolidating where investments overlap and streamlining processes.” 

Historically, Google has remained relatively immune to the economic dips of the technology sector. 

CEO Pichai calls on company to be “more entrepreneurial”

In May, Snap Inc. and Lyft Inc. said they would slow hiring. 

Several weeks later, Instacart Inc. said it would dial back job growth

Tesla Inc. followed with an announcement of a 10% reduction for its salaried workforce.

Meta Platforms Inc. also reduced its hiring plans because of concerns over economic conditions.
