About the job
People Operations strives to revolutionize human resources the same way that Google has revolutionized search. We are helping to find, grow and keep the remarkable assemblage of talent who are our Googlers. You'll be an advocate of Google's culture and values, partnering with our business leaders to help them build their organizations and make sure all people decisions are based on data. Whether coaching our clients on how to lead their teams, navigating and resolving employee relations issues or managing programs that help develop our Googlers, you are exceptionally focused on putting them first, and being as clear and transparent as possible to help Googlers understand how people decisions get made.

The People Consultant team will work directly with Googlers and People Partners (formerly known as HR Business Partners) to provide personalized guidance, support, and solutions on a breadth of People Operations-related activities requiring expertise and depth across multiple organizations and specialties. People Consultants will ensure our Googler's experience the best that Google HR has to offer and will require client-facing skills, problem solving skills, analytical skills, execution skills, domain expertise and empathy. People Consultants will focus on Googler’s experience, provide timely responses, share knowledge and experiences with fellow team members, balance Googlers' individual needs with Google's philosophy, principles, and available resources.

Great just isn't good enough for our People Operations team (you probably know us better as "Human Resources"). Made up of equal parts HR professionals, former consultants, and analysts, we're the advocates of Google's colorful culture. In People Ops, we "find them, grow them, and keep them". We bring the world's most innovative people to Google and provide the programs that help them thrive. Whether recruiting the next Googler, refining our core programs, developing talent, or simply looking for ways to inject some more fun into the lives of our Googlers, we bring a data-driven approach that is reinventing the human resources field.
