How Google Does HR Differently


This is a great series from Matt Alder. Podcasts do sound old hat but given the time poor and long commute I have, I get great insight from Matt’s interviews with some of the most influential leaders in the industry.

This short but sweet interview with Google’s SVP of People Operations Laszlo Bock is a brief glimpse of the Google Way and what a way it is! So, sit back, relax and let your ears do the heavy lifting.

How Google Does HR Differently

Google’s approach to HR and Recruiting has always been a much discussed topic in our industry. Their tenacity in seeking out only the best of the best is legendary and their approach has scaled up in line with their rapid growth from small Silicon Valley start-up to a company with a global workforce of 55,000 people.

Google’s SVP of People Operations Laszlo Bock has recently published a book called Work Rules which gives a detailed insight into how Google has built its incredible success on the back of an innovative approach to talent.

I was lucky enough to meet Laszlo in person recently and interview him for my podcast. Although our discussion was relatively brief a very clear sense of Google’s unique approach to HR, recruitment and culture came across.
