Naughton joined the company fourteen years back as Director.

In November, Google laid off four employees claiming they had violated data security policies, but the tech titan was accused of persecuting them for trying to unionize staff.

San Francisco: On Monday, amid stories of rising worker discontent, the corporate's HR (HR) chief Eileen Naughton confirmed her withdrawal from workplace on Monday.


Google employees have also openly opposed the company pursuing contracts to put its technology to work for the U.S. military.

Part of Naughton's job was to implement ways to make it easier for employees to report alleged abuse and also make the complaint process less stressful for employees.

"In the past 13 years, Eileen has made significant contributions to the company in numerous areas, from media associations, to leading our sales and operations in the United Kingdom and Ireland, to leading our People Operations team over a period of time. of significant growth, during which more than 70,000 people began their careers at Google, "Pichai said". Four of them raised considerations with the National Labor Relations Board, which is now conducting an investigation. In response to that, Ms. Naughton led a bid to increase the minimum pay rate for USA temp employees and vendors. Those have been based out of a wide range of divisions, from Google's Mountain View headquarters to London and NY.


Naughton would assist Alphabet CEO Sundar Pichai and chief financial officer Ruth Porat in finding her replacement.

In a statement regarding her plans, Ms. Naughton has said that the process of stepping down is still in its earliest stages. She will purportedly take a new role at an unspecified time and date.

Google's head of human resources is resigning, the company announced today.


"We're grateful to Eileen for all she's done and look forward to her next chapter at Google", Sundar Pichai, the top of Google and its father or mother firm Alphabet, stated in an announcement.
