Google to Slow Hiring for Rest of This Year

Alphabet Google will slow hiring for the rest of the year, Chief Executive Sundar Pichai told employees, making the search giant the latest tech company to either pull back on new hires or trim staff.

In an email sent to employees on Tuesday, Mr. Pichai said Google would be “slowing the pace of hiring for the rest of the year, while still supporting our most important opportunities.” Google hired about 10,000 new employees in the second quarter and more who are committed to start this quarter, he added.
