As stated in an interview Forbes HR director Google Laszlo Bock, employees of the company can count on benefits even in case of death. The next of kin will be paid monetary compensation.
In the event of an employee's death, Google undertakes to pay half of his salary to his wife or spouse for ten years. In addition, the children of a deceased employee will also receive $1,000 each month until they reach the age of 19. In some cases, payments to children can continue up to the age of 23.
The most important thing about this innovation is that any Google employee can count on posthumous benefits, regardless of their position or length of service. By the way, today the company employs about 34 thousand people.
