Why Is Google A Dream Workplace?
In 21st century, there is no doubt that Google has won the heart of many Youth that are about to start their work life. Many of the young people would consider themselves lucky if they gain the opportunity to work at Google.
Aside from its name that is huge and sellable in the curriculum vitae, the young generation is actually putting more concern to the intangible things that Google can offer.
Google is the pioneer of a modern work environment, promoting many new values that are fresh and fun to be conducted. Many companies are looking up to Google when it comes to creating workplaces.
What are those intangible things?
Google shows how much it cares about the employees’ personal lives.
Google has proven to the employees how much it cares to their personal lives. It provides things like free cafeteria meals, free use of laundry machines, and a day-care center. This was intended to make the employees stay longer and spend more productive hours at work, because the employees do not have to worry about the little necessities anymore and run away from work earlier.
The flexibility of workplaces – College-kind-of workplace, as they say.
Flexibility is not something you should be worrying about at all when you work at Google. Google is aware that in today’s technology-driven world, employees can easily stay connected to what’s happening with the business without being physically present. The employees sense it and as a result, Google is now well known for its flexibility and the less-stressful trait of its workplace environment.
Google gives many develop space – Encourages emploees to try new things.
Said Robyn Beavers of Google’s Green Business and Operations Strategy in the video profile of the search company: “A really interesting thing about Google is that it always encourages its employees to try new things.” Beavers then revealed that she started out as one of the assistants of the two co-founders back in May 2004 and had begun projects in green energy for Google’s operations in 2005.
It seems like money are not most important anymore, at least for our generation. What do you think?
