Report: Google's HR chief to step down amid growing employee tension

Google employees are increasingly challenging to top-level decisions. Google is in the news for its employee relations from the last couple of years.

Eileen Naughton, Vice President of People Operations, Google is quitting from her role, said reports. In late 2018, the company confirmed that it had fired as many as 48 of its employees over such claims.

According to her statement, she has mentioned that she has chose to move to NY to be closer to her family.

Google says Naughton is stepping all the way down to be nearer to her circle of relatives and that she'll ultimately take any other function inside the corporate.

She said, "My husband and I have decided-after six years on the road, first in London and now San Francisco-to return home to NY to be closer to our family". That makes some sense - Google's important places of work are in Mountain View, California, and it's doable that People Operations wouldn't be as efficient run remotely. "I'm on the very starting of the method, and needed to let everybody know upfront, as I'll be working with Sundar and Ruth [Porat, Google's CFO] to search out an awesome chief for the Individuals Operations group".

Google's head of human resources is resigning, the company announced today.

"Over the past 13 years, Eileen has made major contributions to the company in numerous areas", CEO Pichai told Fortune.

"We're grateful to Eileen for all she's done and look forward to her next chapter at Google", Sundar Pichai, the top of Google and its father or mother firm Alphabet, stated in an announcement.

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

Naughton has held the highest HR process for 4 years, a duration that noticed Google and its Silicon Valley brethren cross from the envy of workers far and wide-with pampering and perks and a "alternate the arena" challenge-to hotbeds of employee activism, as emboldened staffers demanded that their paintings be used for what they deem "good".
