Following the announcement of hiring tech employees for the new Google Cloud office in Pune, India, the company is again up for adding new employees to build a business around blockchain applications. 

According to a report published by CNBC, the company plans to “diversify aways fro advertising and become more prominent in the growing market for computing and storage services delivered from remote third-party data centres.”

Commenting on the hiring plans of the company, Richard Widmann, head of the strategy for digital assets at Google’s cloud unit said, “We think that if we do our jobs right, it will drive decentralization.

The new employees will be responsible for developing advanced enterprise cloud technologies in collaboration with the company’s global engineering team. The new team will provide real-time technical advice and deliver expertise to the customers in order to gain their trust for Google Cloud. 

In another announcement, Google also noted that the employees will now get minimum 20 paid leaves annually which were only 15 earlier. As per a report carried out by India Today, the Chief People Officer of Google Fiona Cicconi said that this move aims at supporting “our employees at every stage of their lives and that means providing extraordinary benefits.”

Additionally, the tech giant has ramped up parental leaves for the new parents to up to 24 weeks from 18 days, while other parents are entitled to 18 weeks instead of 12. In fact, the number of caregiving leaves has been increased to 8 weeks which was limited to 4 weeks initially.  

The other perks and benefits restructured by Google include on-site meals and snacks, internet reimbursement and company-paid mobile phone, four “work from anywhere” weeks per year, workplace accommodations for physical or mental health concerns, and more.
