Laszlo Bock leaves Google

Laszlo Bock, Google’s VP – People Operations, has left the Brobdingnagian technology firm.

Google’s Managing Director – UK and Ireland, Eileen Naughton, will replace him. Bock will remain in an advisory capacity. 

Naughton said: "I consider it a privilege to take up this role, and especially so at Google. It’s a once-in-a-career opportunity, and a rare chance to help nurture Google’s culture of inclusion, respect, hijinks and innovation over the long-term. These are the values that first attracted me to Google ten years ago, and continue to inspire me today. It has been an absolute pleasure to work with the UK and Ireland teams and see how our work with customers has pushed for more creative and innovative marketing and helped our clients and agency partners grow their businesses."

Bock was well known for his work at Google, present from when the firm hid its HR practices in a bid to win the war for talent.

He addressed this period in his speech "Let's make work better", which can be seen below:
