The Employee Engagement team (EE) is an influencing organization that aims to support a more inclusive, equitable, respectful Google by creating and delivering business responsive strategies for change, and building the capability of Googlers, managers, and leaders to scale our impact. From supporting racial equity efforts and LGBT rights to extending parental leave benefits, we aspire to do the right thing in every part of the world.

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.
