At LinkedIn, we talk about 3 kinds of TRANSFORMATION
1 Transformation of SELF
1 Leave LinkedIn a better professional than when you started
Career Transformation Jessica Clark started LinkedIn in 2012 as a front desk receptionist. She transformed her career by showcasing her design skills, eventually joining the User Experience Design team.
Speaker Series The LinkedIn Speaker Series supports our mission of making professionals more productive and successful. We do this by exposing our employees and members to inspiring ideas and Innovative thinkers from around the Globe.
Wellness Thoughts, Breathing, Hydration, Nutrition, Movement, and Rest are The six tenents of LinkedIn’s Wellness Program. We offer a variety of classes, Events and programs to support our Employees on their path to greatness.
2 Transformation of COMPANY
2 Enable LinkedIn to realize it full potential
Women in Tech Empower women at LinkedIn to Transform themselves, their Careers and the company.
Diversity: Employee Resource Groups Inclusion is a core foundation of LinkedIn’s culture and our mission. This can only be achieved through a workforce that reflects the rich diversity of our global member base, and this is Something we strive to do in all of our Hiring efforts.
Company All Hands Our bi-weekly Company All Hands sets the tone for open, honest and constructive communication – one of our core values. It’s also a lot of fun, too.
3 Transformation of WORLD
3 Create economic opportunity for every member of the global workforce
Economic Graph By digitally mapping the global economy, we will be able to create economic opportunity for every one of the 3 billion people in the global workforce, connecting talent with opportunity at massive scale, and helping individuals to plan their economic destiny.
Rachelle Diamond used her LinkedIn for Good Grant to inspire her colleagues to run in solidarity for a friend. This past year, over 900 employees ran in her event, RunInUnited. LinkedIn for Good LinkedIn for Good connects professionals with opportunities to impact the world. We help our members use their skills for good – to give back while developing as professionals. And we leverage the power of LinkedIn to help nonprofits achieve their mission.
InDay InDay is a day at LinkedIn where employees take all or part of the day off, once a month, from our regular work to explore new ideas, hack with friends, volunteer for special causes, invest in ourselves or whatever inspires us.
INTEGRITY We don’t believe the ends justify the means. We expect employees to do the right thing. Period.
COLLABORATION As a valuable as we are as individuals, we are exponentially more valuable when aligned and working together. We believe great ideas and inspirations come from everyone. It starts by asking what each of us can do to help achieve the company’s mission.
Humor Changing the world is hard work, so it’s important to not take ourselves too seriously and have a few laughs along the way. Don’t wait for other people to make you laugh; lead by example.
RESULTS We set clear, actionable goals and have high expectations for our performance. If you can’t measure it, you can’t fix it. we count on one another to consistently deliver excellent results, seek leverage through greater efficiency and effectiveness and demonstrate leadership at all levels of the organization. Deepak Agarwal Senior Director of Engineering Fellow of the American Statistical Association Mountain View
Our Values The operating principles we use to run the company on a daily basis
OUR MEMBERS COME FIRST RELATIONSHIPS MATTER BE OPEN, HONEST AND CONSTRUCTIVE DEMAND EXCELLENCE TAKE INTELLIGENT RISKS ACT LIKE AN OWNER
Lutz Finger Director, Business Analytics Mountain View Our Members come first Simply put, without our members, there’s no LinkedIn. Everything we do is ultimately driven by our desire to create value for our members. We encourage employees to know and understand our members to ensure the long-term health of the LinkedIn ecosystem
Relationships MATTER We’re in the business of building relationships, and this extends into the relationships we have at work. We manage compassionately by recognizing that people have experiencs and perspectives that may differ from our own. By fostering trust among members, customers, colleagues and partners, we all succeed.
BE OPEN, HONEST AND CONSTRUCTIVE We expect our employees to communicate with clarity and provide feedback in a constructive way. There is a virtuous cycle associated with transparency: The more we share what’s working and what’s not working, the more likely we’re able to generate solutions to problems, leverage best demonstrated practices, and ensure that every member of the team feels that this is their company.
DEMAND EXCELLENCE Our employees are encouraged to lead by example, seek to solve big challenges, set measurable and actionable goals, and continuously learn, iterate and improve. We set a high bar and expect to clear it.
TAKE INTELLIGENT RISKS A key reason we believe LinkedIn has been successful is that we encourage our team to take intelligent risks. We strive to always maintain the start-up mentality on which the company was founded. Not every risk we take will work out, so it’s important to learn from those mistakes – and then move on.
ACT LIKE AN OWNER We expect our employees to act like owners with regard to every decision they make, no matter how big or small. Don’t ask why “The Company” does something. It’s Our Company – let’s decide what we’re going to do about it. Jen Williams Program Manager Mountain View
