About the job
People Operations strives to revolutionize human resources the same way that Google has revolutionized search. We are helping to find, grow and keep the remarkable assemblage of talent who are our Googlers. You’ll be an advocate of Google’s culture and values, partnering with our business leaders to help them build their organizations and make sure all people decisions are based on data. Whether coaching our clients on how to lead their teams, navigating and resolving employee relations issues or managing programs that help develop our Googlers, you are exceptionally focused on putting them first, and being as clear and transparent as possible to help Googlers understand how people decisions get made.
As an HR Business Partner, you will be responsible for solving organizational challenges through people-related solutions. You’ll create the complete people strategy that will support Googlers in realizing their ambitions. You’ll partner with a cross-functional group of subject-matter experts to design and execute strategies for how we staff, onboard, develop, motivate, retain, and organize work. You’ll also have the opportunity to collaborate internally on a variety of people-related areas. In this role, you will roll out programs to support Googlers, including compensation, performance, and talent programs.
Great just isn’t good enough for our People Operations team (known elsewhere as “Human Resources”). We bring the world’s most innovative people to Google and provide the programs that help them thrive. Whether recruiting the next Googler, refining our core programs, developing talent, or simply looking for ways to inject some more fun into the lives of our Googlers, we bring a data-driven approach that is reinventing the human resources field. You’ll play an essential role advancing a more diverse, accessible, equitable, and inclusive Google through our hiring, promotion, retention, and inclusion practices.
