re:Work - Guide: Develop and support managers


When a Googler becomes a people manager, it might be the first time they have professionally managed other people. With so much to learn, Google provides new managers with a robust support network, management resources, and learning programs.

Google usually trains new managers after they’ve already started their new role - generally 45 to 90 days into management. While, intuitively, it makes sense to prepare someone for a job before they start doing it, the team has found managers are most receptive to learning after they’ve had some time in the new role and gathered some experience upon which to reflect.
