As the next heavyweight in the tech industry, Google parent company Alphabet has cut thousands of jobs. Around 12,000 jobs will be lost worldwide, as company boss Sundar Pichai wrote in a blog post on Friday.

This corresponds to around six percent of the workforce. Areas outside the core business should therefore be more affected. Employees in the USA have already been informed of the termination. “In other countries, this process will take longer due to local laws and practices,” Pichai continues.

When asked by the AWP news agency, Google was unable to say whether and how many jobs in Switzerland would be affected by the cuts. Google has had several offices in Zurich since 2004. According to its own statements, the technology group employs more than 5,000 people from more than 85 nations in Limmatstadt.
