Google HR Chief to Step Aside this Year Amid Growing Activism of the Employees

Google HR chief to step aside amid growing worker activism

Google human resources chief Eileen Naughton is set to step aside this year amid growing activism of the company’s employees.

“We’re grateful to Eileen for all she’s done and look forward to her next chapter at Google,” Alphabet and CEO Sundar Pichai was quoted as saying in a statement by The Verge on Monday.

Internal activism within the company increased after reports of the company offering multimillion-dollar severance packages to employees accused of engaging in inappropriate sexual relationships.

The tech giant has faced a lot of flak over the past year allegedly for firing people for speaking up against unfair practices.

At one point about 20,000 employees staged a walkout. Many employees later alleged that Google resorted to retaliation against those who reported workplace issues.

It however, maintained that during Naughton’s tenure as HR chief, the number of employees at the company grew significantly.

“Over the past 13 years, Eileen has made major contributions to the company in numerous areas, from media partnerships, to leading our sales and operations in the UK and Ireland, to leading our People Operations team through a period of significant growth — during which over 70,000 people started their careers at Google,” Pichai said.
