Technology is the cause of all evils! Ironically, I stumbled upon this phrase on search giant – Google!

According to the Economic Forum and Accenture, 87% of the workforce covered in a recent survey jointly conducted by the two agencies, consider #AI as an important tool that is going to enhance our work experience. Agreeing with this prediction, Jeanne Meister in, The Future Of Work: Three New HR Roles In The Age Of  Artificial Intelligence, written for the Forbes online magazine, observes that in the next few years to come, workers would be ready to use their free time in picking a new set of skills that could support their current field.

Continuing with our Google series, this piece will discuss the functional aspects of Google’s workplace, headquartered in Mountain View, California, U.S, which has become a money-spinner of sorts.   

“On average, each Google employee generates nearly $1 million in revenue and $200,000 in profit each year” according to TLNT, a U.S-based news vertical that covers ‘the business of human resources.’

The Human Resources department around the globe is facing the biggest test of its time called #EmployeeEngagement.
