48 ontslagen bij Google wegens seksuele intimidatie, onder wie 13 toplui

CEO Sundar Pichai.

Multimedia Bij Google zijn de voorbije twee jaar 48 medewerkers ontslagen wegens seksueel ongepast gedrag. Dat schrijft CEO Sundar Pichai in een mail aan het personeel die AFP kon inkijken. “We willen je verzekeren dat we elke klacht over seksueel wangedrag of ongepast gedrag bekijken, onderzoeken en behandelen”, luidt het in de mail, die mee werd ondertekend door Eileen Naugton, vicehoofd van de HR-afdeling.

Google kwam in opspraak omdat het jarenlang verdenkingen van seksueel wangedrag door Android-oprichter Andy Rubin zou hebben verzwegen. Sterker nog, nadat duidelijk werd dat de claims geloofwaardig waren, liet Google Rubin in 2014 vertrekken met een premie van 90 miljoen dollar. Dat schrijft The New York Times op basis van ingewijden. Google ontkent de beschuldiging.

Geen ontslagvergoedingen

Pichai schrijft nu dat de 48 werknemers die werden ontslagen wegens seksueel wangedrag “geen enkel ‘exitpakket’ of ontslagvergoeding kregen”. Hij meldt ook nog dat dertien van hen “senior managers of hoger waren”. Hij lijst ook stappen op die Google heeft genomen voor meer transparantie en vertrouwelijkheid in de maanden en jaren na het omstreden vertrek van Rubin. “We zijn doodserieus in ons voornemen om een veilige in inclusieve werkplek te bieden”, staat nog in de mail.

Pichai probeert in het bericht niets uit het artikel van de Times te ontkennen of te weerleggen. De krant schreef ook nog dat Google naast Rubin nog twee andere mannen beschermde die werden beschuldigd van seksueel wangedrag, en die naar de uitgang werden begeleid met royale exitvergoedingen.
Andy Rubin.

Gedwongen seks

Het techconcern en moederbedrijf Alphabet hebben altijd beweerd dat Rubin destijds zelf besloot om wat anders te gaan doen. Maar volgens The New York Times maakte een beschuldiging over een seksavontuurtje zijn positie onhoudbaar. Hij zou een vrouwelijke medewerker met wie hij een affaire had tegen haar zin hebben gedwongen tot orale seks.

Rubin wordt beschouwd als de geestelijk vader van besturingssysteem Android, waarop wereldwijd miljarden smartphones draaien. Hij werkte sinds 2005 bij Google nadat het bedrijf Android had ingelijfd. In het wereldje was hij nooit onomstreden. Wijlen Apple-topman Steve Jobs verweet Rubin bijvoorbeeld dat Google Appless besturingssysteem iOS had gekopieerd met Android.

Dit is de volledige mail aan het personeel:

Hi everyone,

Today’s story in the New York Times was difficult to read.

We are dead serious about making sure we provide a safe and inclusive workplace. We want to assure you that we review every single complaint about sexual harassment or inappropriate conduct, we investigate and we take action.

In recent years, we’ve made a number of changes, including taking an increasingly hard line on inappropriate conduct by people in positions of authority: in the last two years, 48 people have been terminated for sexual harassment, including 13 who were senior managers and above. None of these individuals received an exit package.

In 2015, we launched Respect@ and our annual Internal Investigations Report to provide transparency about these types of investigations at Google. Because we know that reporting harassment can be traumatic, we provide confidential channels to share any inappropriate behavior you experience or see. We support and respect those who have spoken out. You can find many ways to do this at go/saysomething. You can make a report anonymously if you wish.

We’ve also updated our policy to require all VPs and SVPs to disclose any relationship with a co-worker regardless of reporting line or presence of conflict.

We are committed to ensuring that Google is a workplace where you can feel safe to do your best work, and where there are serious consequences for anyone who behaves inappropriately.

Sundar and Eileen ... ~aacd6685/

UPDATE 5-Google parent's shares dive as YouTube changes, competition hurt revenue
22:21 (29/04) - Bron: Reuters
(Adds details from conference call)
By Arjun Panchadar and Paresh Dave
April 29 (Reuters) - Alphabet Inc's Google on
Monday saw its slowest revenue growth in three years from
increased competition in advertising, stumbles in its smartphone
business and disruptive changes at YouTube that left the leading
internet ad company lagging rivals.
Shares of Alphabet dropped 7.5 percent after hours, setting
them up for the biggest one-day drop since falling 8 percent in
October 2012. They had closed Monday at a record-high of
Alphabet Chief Financial Officer Ruth Porat attributed
slower revenue growth to currency fluctuations, competition and
unspecified product changes.
The company is facing continued pressure from advertisers to
tighten controls on its fast-growing YouTube video service so
that they not appear to be sponsoring adult or offensive
Google also is struggling to find the right mix of ad
formats to use on mobile devices, voice assistant-enabled home
speakers and in emerging markets.
Eight of the 11 analysts who questioned executives on a call
on Monday asked about the revenue issues, an unusual level of
shared interest. But the executives offered limited new details,
prompting Barclays' analyst Ross Sandler near the end to preface
a question by saying he was just beating a dead horse.
Reflecting on the sales growth slowdown, Porat said
unspecified changes at YouTube had boosted first-quarter revenue
a year ago, with nothing delivering a comparable bump this year.
About 85 percent of Alphabet's revenue comes from Google’s
ad business, which sells links, banners and commercials across
its own websites and apps and those of partners.
Chief Executive Sundar Pichai said revenue slowdowns should
be expected as the company focuses on the long term.
"You are going to have quarter-to-quarter variations once in
a while, but we remain confident about the opportunities we
see," he said on a conference call.
Major competitors for ad spending such as Facebook Inc
, Snap Inc SNAP.N , Inc and Twitter
Inc TWTR.N all reported last week quarterly revenue above or
in line with analysts' expectations.
Alphabet said its quarterly revenue rose 17 percent from a
year ago to $36.3 billion, about $1 billion short of Wall
Street’s average estimate, according to IBES data from
The company said it would have met expectations, adjusting
for currency fluctuations.
The growth was the slowest since 17 percent in the first
quarter of 2016 and compared with 26 percent for the same
quarter in 2018.
Facebook, the No. 2 internet ad company, posted 26 percent
growth to $15.1 billion in quarterly results last week.

"Google ad revenue growth has been slowing amid downward
pressure on ad prices, especially for revenues coming from
international markets," Monica Peart, senior forecasting
director for ad research firm eMarketer said in a statement.

Alphabet's quarterly costs rose about the same as revenue,
up 16.5 percent from last year to $29.7 billion.
Expenses have surged faster than revenue for much of the
past two years as it adds data centers, offices and YouTube
content licenses, concerning some investors amid increased
scrutiny on the company's privacy practices and the advertising
restrictions at YouTube.
More advertising controls are coming to YouTube in the
coming weeks that could affect sales, Pichai said.
In the first quarter, sales of Google's Pixel phones also
struggled from intense competition in the premium smartphone
market, Porat said. The company is expected to introduce
lower-priced Pixel devices next month.
Alphabet has yet to tout significant revenue from its
spending on ventures such as self-driving cars and its AI helper
Google Assistant.
Newer units that are producing noticeable revenue have
lagged in market share, including Google's consolidated hardware
unit and Google Cloud, which sells computing and data storage
services to businesses.
And Google's costs could jump further if governments
globally follow through on threats to rein in the ability of
apps to track users for advertising purposes. Other regulators
have discussed forcing companies to step up monitoring of user
content. Cost will rise in the current quarter as Google resumes
some marketing efforts, Porat said.
Shares of Alphabet have gained 23 percent this year as
positive macroeconomic signals had given investors reason to bet
on it. But it is the least growth among the so-called FAANG
group, with Facebook at 48 percent, Netflix at 39 percent, Apple
at 30 percent and Amazon at 29 percent.

Alphabet's expenses included a $1.7 billion fine from the
European Commission for having placed anticompetitive
advertising restrictions on websites using its searches.

Google's 3 billion users help make it the world's largest
seller of internet ads, capturing nearly a third of all revenue,
according to research firm eMarketer. Facebook is at about 20
Including the European fine, net income was $6.7 billion, or
$9.50 per share, compared with analysts' average estimate of
$7.3 billion, or $10.48 per share. Earnings excluding the fine
were $8.3 billion, or $11.90 per share, beating analysts'
estimates $10.61 per share for adjusted earnings.
Operating margin excluding the fine was 23 percent, up from
22 percent in the year-ago period.
