lol at life When you have basically all the money in the world, it can be tough to spend it all. It will be even tougher to spend when you're dead. If you're Google CEO and co-founder Larry Page, though, you already know how you want your money to live on after you're gone: support innovators like Tesla CEO Elon Musk.
That's what Page said at the TED conference in Vancouver, Canada this week, anyway, adding that the already-wealthy Musk is worthy of the Page billions because he's one of the people who can change the world. Page said: He wants to go to Mars. That's a worthy goal. We have a lot of employees at Google who've become pretty wealthy. You're working because you want to change the world and make it better; if the company you work for is worthy of your time, why not your money as well? We just don't think about that. I'd like for us to help out more than we are.
On top of Tesla, Musk also runs SpaceX and Solar City. Tesla said in a statement to Automotive News that, "[Musk] is honored by Larry's comments and very much admires what he has accomplished with Google."
Fortune Magazine and the Great Place to Work Institute named Google the 2014 “Best Company Work For.” This marks our fifth time at the top of the list. While we’re honored to be included, what makes us proud is the recognition of the great contributions Googlers make to the communities in which we live and work.
Here are some of the ways that Googlers gave back over the past year:
Last June, over 8,500 Googlers from 75+ offices participated in GoogleServe, our annual global week of service. In September, over 600 Googlers celebrated our 15th anniversary by doing community service events in different cities around the world. On Martin Luther King Day of Service, Googlers in our Bay Area offices participated in local volunteer projects in San Francisco and Oakland. What’s truly makes Google a great place to work? Our people.
