“‘Organize the world’s information and make it universally accessible and useful.’
Since the beginning, our goal has been to develop services that significantly improve the lives of as many people as possible. Not just for some. For everyone.“
Google’s business philosophy is summarized in the company’s corporate motto: “Don’t be evil”, which was used in the prospectus of Google’s 2004 IPO. It is still mentioned in Google’s Code of Conduct.
The official Google’s Code of Conduct, on top of serious topics such as conflicts of interests or equal opportunity employment, also covers the company’s dog policy: “Google’s affection for our canine friends is an integral facet of our corporate culture. We like cats, but we’re a dog company, so as a general rule we feel cats visiting our offices would be fairly stressed out.“
