Google CEO: Staffs should not 'equate fun with money’
(MENAFN) Google CEO Sundar Pichai called for his staffs not to "equate fun with money" during a firm-wide town hall event the previous week.
Pichai remarked when staffs protested that Google was limiting benefits for travel, in addition to on-site entertainment and other perks, in line with a recording of the conference taken by CNBC.
The staffs argued the firm was "nickel-and-diming" them even as Google sees high-breaking incomes.
"How do I say it?" Pichai replied. "Look, I hope all of you are reading the news, externally. The fact that you know, we are being a bit more responsible through one of the toughest macroeconomic conditions underway in the past decade, I think it’s important that as a company, we pull together to get through moments like this."
"I remember when Google was small and scrappy," he added. "Fun didn’t always — we shouldn’t always equate fun with money. I think you can walk into a hard-working startup and people may be having fun and it shouldn’t always equate to money."
