Benefits

When it comes to our benefits and perks, we have everything you’d expect from a large company, like health insurance, retirement benefits and so on. But we also offer way more than the basics. Our benefits are part of who we are, and they’re designed to take care of the whole you and keep you healthy, whether physically, emotionally, financially or socially.

How we think about our benefits

We want to make your life better and easier.

Here’s the secret sauce to our benefits and perks: It’s all about removing barriers so Googlers can focus on the things they love, both inside and outside of work. We’re constantly searching for unique ways to improve the health and happiness of our Googlers. And it doesn’t stop there--our hope is that, ultimately, you become a better person by working here.

We want our benefits to work for you.

Your interests and needs evolve over your lifetime. Likewise, we evaluate our benefits regularly and adapt them to the needs of our changing population. As with anything at Google, your benefits are an open conversation and your feedback is a part of the equation. You’re valuable to us, and our benefits and perks are there to show it.

We care about you AND your family.

Our benefits exist to make sure that you are well taken care of. Your family matters to you, so they’re important to us, too. We have a number of benefit programs and onsite amenities to support you and your loved ones through life’s various stages and situations. Hey, we’re family.
