Is Google Inc (GOOGL)’s Next Product A School For Kids?

Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOGL), as one of the technology industry’s most visible brands, is also the subject of possibly more intense scrutiny from the public when it comes to workforce diversity. As the issue continues to roll on, will the technology giant be opening a school to combat a lack of diversity in the pool of people qualified to get a job inside the company?

Not exactly, according to Laszlo Block, Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOGL) people operations head, in an interview with CNBC.

During the interview, Jon Fortt asked the executive whether information he has culled from sources in the technology and education sector was true. According to the CNBC contributor, his sources tell him that the web giant may be putting up a school that trains future employees.

“I don’t think we’re ready to launch a school but what we have done is we have created a program called CS First and we actually partnered with [Mayor] Bill de Blasio here in New York City. It came out of our work in South Carolina. It’s basically computer science curriculum in a box that you can use to form clubs targeting 4th through 12th graders and this year we hope to put over 100,000 kids through it,” Block said.

Block was on CNBC as he was promoting his book titled “Work Rules!” in which he discusses how Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOGL) selects people from a massive pool of candidates. In the book, Block also discusses how the search giant, which is famous for being very stringent with its hiring process, actually processes applications.

According to Block, Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOGL) is expected to receive about 2 million applications this year and out of those millions, only five thousand will be hired. He said that after applicants are screened, the final decision on whether to hire people will be given by Google CEO Larry Page himself. Asked whether this is a waste of the executive’s time, Block said that his team has fine-tuned what information Page needs and that the decision making process for the CEO does not take as much time as it used to.

Robert Karr’s Joho Capital owned 150,664 Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOGL) shares by the end of 2014.
