    Tell your managers and invite your parents; LinkedIn’s 3rd annual Bring In Your Parents Day is on November 5, 2015. Find all the information you need at bringinyourparents.linkedin.com When my dad, a retired auto mechanic, first visited me at work at the LinkedIn office in 2013, one of the first things he asked me was, “Why do you need so many people to run a website?” For a recently retired, 47-year veteran of the automotive industry, you could say that walking into a high-tech workplace was just a little overwhelming.

  • InDay: Investing In Our Employees So They Can Invest In Themselves

    Nina McQueen
    29 Jul 2015 | 10:30 am
    Each month, LinkedIn gives employees a day to focus on themselves, the company, and the world. A day to invest, inspire and innovate. That day is called Investment Day, or “InDay” for short, and it is one of our most treasured traditions at LinkedIn. At LinkedIn, Talent is our number one operating priority, and investing in our employees by dedicating one day a month to invest in themselves goes a long way in fostering the culture that was created when we were a much smaller company. In fact, InDay started in 2010 when LinkedIn had less than 1,000 employees. Today, we’re north of 8,000…

    Many of you have told us that you receive too many emails from LinkedIn. We’re also not immune to the late night talk show host jokes. We get it. And we’ve recently begun to make changes so that the emails you receive are more infrequent and more relevant. Here are two of the most recent examples: If you are getting too many invitations to connect, we have begun to send you a single weekly digest in place of individual emails. If you subscribe to several LinkedIn Groups, we are aggregating the updates from those groups into a single email. The results so far have been very…

    July 2015 is rapidly drawing to a close. By now, I’ve had enough time to process some of the ongoing controversy and discussion surrounding the release of Harper Lee’s new-to-us novel, Go Set a Watchman. I have been truly amazed by the variety of reactions voiced or written about this book. They run the gamut from a staunch refusal to even consider reading it to wanting to be the first amongst your family, friends, or book group to dive enthusiastically into it. One comment that made my eyebrows fly towards the heavens was the man who wrote in the Boston Globe’s “Letters to the…
