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.

Slide 29

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.

Slide 30

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.

Slide 31

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.

Slide 32

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
