Google To “Significantly Reduce” Contractors

According to Silicon Alley Insider and CNet: “Google has about 10,000 contractors and it wants to reduce that number”.

“In an interview, Google co-founder Sergey Brin said the company has been concerned about its high contracting expense. Brin said Google augments its workforce of 20,123 employees with about 10,000 contractors.

“It’s really high,” Brin said of the number of contractors. He said Google began looking at the number six months ago and has a plan to significantly reduce that number through vendor management, converting some contractors to regular employees, and other approaches.”
