Culture and Values
Our culture is our foundation.
We take great pride in our LinkedIn culture. It is the collective personality of our organization. It sets us apart, defines who we are and shapes what we aspire to be. With that, there are five pillars we strive to uphold that underscore what we do and how we do it: transformation, integrity, collaboration, humor and results.
Our values define us.
Our values have grown to define us. It's one thing to change the world. It's another to do it in our own unique way: Members first. Relationships matter. Be open, honest and constructive. Demand excellence. Take intelligent risks. Act like an owner.
