Google to invest $9.5bn in US offices, data centres: Pichai


Google plans to invest about $9.5 billion in its US offices and data centres this year as the technology major seeks to get more employees back into its buildings as Covid-19 restrictions ease.

The Alphabet-owned company will create 12,000 jobs as part of the investment, chief executive Sundar Pichai said in a blog post on Wednesday. “It might seem counter-intuitive to step up our investment in physical offices even as we embrace more flexibility in how we work,” he said. “Yet we believe it’s more important than ever to invest in our campuses and that doing so will make for better products, a greater quality of life for our employees and stronger communities.”—TLTP
