Subject: Comparing Google & Microsoft’s HR Management To : Patrick Woodcock From: Mahima Mandava (8203482) Tanya Tam (8187268) Tae Kim (8391046) Piranavan Sripalan ( 8223674) Danyaal Soni ( 8157932) Groups Email: [email protected] Conclusion: Based on the information acquired from the external, published sources, a detailed analysis of Microsoft and Google has shown that while both companies hit the minimal benefits of a company of their stature, Google has proven to be an exceptional choice compared to Microsoft. This choice was developed on the basis of Google’s culture, a culture which focuses on the well being of their employees and their fulfillment. Google has achieved this through creating a more user friendly atmosphere, a better pension plan, including family benefits, providing more or better materialistic goods, a wide range of insurance benefits, and giving a broader usage of vacation days.

Discussion Google and Microsoft are world renowned organizations, that serve as benchmarks by being a leading corporation in their field.

In figure 1, an employee at Microsoft quotes how employees do not feel like they are trusted and how they are conflicted in company politics. In both of these cases it is evident that the approach done by Google could be favoured as being more acceptable since employees work better and proficient in an environment such as the one created by Google. To most employees a pension plan is a major factor to consider when deciding to work for a company. Both companies provide their employees with a 401K. A 401K plan is when a company takes a portion of an employee’s salary and puts it into a savings. Money that is stored in this saving is often matched with specific interests influenced by a combination of standards set by other companies, and the financial status of the company. Microsoft and Google match half of every dollar invested into this savings account.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
