Google on Purpose, Transparency and Voice
As I sat outside on a perfect, sunny day in Silicon Valley, watching dogs play in the grass, and men in suits ride by on brightly colored bicycles, I found it hard to believe what I was hearing. A group from Great Place to Work had just finished a tour of Google’s Mountain View campus, led by three members of Google’s People Operations team. “It’s not really about the perks,” they insisted. Sure, I thought, as I adjusted my chair so I could get a better angle on the outdoor volley ball game that had just started up, and slipped out of my jacket to get some sun on my arms.
