Strategic Volunteering

We create opportunities for LinkedIn employees to engage in social impact by contributing their skills and time to support underserved youth in their communities. At a local level, each LinkedIn office partners with local youth-focused nonprofits to help young people get a strong start on their professional journeys. Programs include but are not limited to: speed mentoring, LinkedIn training sessions, and skills-based coaching.

Charitable Giving

We encourage our employees to give to the causes they’re most passionate about ... and we’re committed to amplifying their impact. LinkedIn Gives is a LinkedIn for Good crowdfunding platform, powered by GoFundMe. It enables our employees to make an impact in a way that inspires them, by supporting the charities and nonprofits they care about – and by unlocking LinkedIn for Good funds in support of their causes. LinkedIn also offers a matching gifts program – $1,000 per year, per employee – and runs an annual Give the Gift of Talent campaign that enables our employees to gift a free job posting, volunteer posting, and/or Premium subscription to a nonprofit of their choice.

Activating Purpose

We know that purpose-driven professionals are more productive and successful, which is why we are focused on activating that purpose internally. We host workshops to help each employee understand how their work ladders up to our company vision to create economic opportunity for every member of the global workforce. We also publish content to educate others on the power of purpose-driven talent.
