Core values
LinkedIn has a culture centered around 5 dimensions (transformation / results / integrity / collaboration / humor) and 6 core values: 1. Our Members Come First: We encourage employees to know and understand our members and to ensure that we foster the long-term vitality of the LinkedIn ecosystem. 2. Relationships Matter: By fostering trust with colleagues and partners, we all succeed. We fundamentally believe that doing what is right is more important than being right. We manage compassionately by recognizing that people have experiences and perspectives that may differ from our own. We put ourselves in the shoes of others before drawing conclusions. 3. Be Open, Honest and Constructive: We expect our employees to communicate with clarity and provide feedback with consistency in a constructive way. 4. 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. 5. Take Intelligent Risks: Taking intelligent risks has been paramount in building the company to date. No matter how large we become we strive to never lose our startup mentality. 6. Act Like an Owner: Talent is our most important asset. We expect our employees to act as an owner in each decision they make, no matter how big or small.
