Mission: Our Purpose: Helping people around the world do the right thing
Inspiring people to do the right thing is the essence of principled performance. It is about inspired rather than required behavior—living principles beyond following rules. It is ...
I have been working at LRN full-time
Our mission to “Inspire Principle Performance” is a mission that is as lofty as it is worthwhile.
LRN has a real opportunity to grow its business with hard work and focus. Individuals that are self-starters and are driven have the chance to take on as much real and meaningful work as they can handle and make a real impact on the business.
LRN is going through a revitalization of its ethics and compliance education business. We are committed to improving itself in all areas: content, technology, sales, marketing, support, etc. It is hard work, but we are seeing tangible positive impacts on our colleagues’ experience here and on specific business metrics. Employee retention is at a high point. Content and technology is being created at a more rapid rate than in the past. Sales are increasing. All of this, and more, have helped LRN to achieve its mission while at the same time improving our colleague’s work-lives (and business success has certainly helped most colleagues financially as well).
While no place is perfect and each has its own limitations, our mission is of the highest import and our business is on a very good path.
Like any organization, we are not perfect. Striving to be self-governing requires effort and energy, though the promise of the effect is transformational.
Advice to Management
Continue to invest in your colleagues and don't sweat the small stuff.
I applied online. I interviewed at LRN (New York, NY) in June 2017.
My experience with the company was mixed.
I was contacted through email for an in-person interview. Two individuals interviewed me for the position both of whom I had a good conversation with. They, however, they seemed unprepared for my appointment.
For example, I was interviewed in the common area versus a conference room. This meant individuals within the office were in and out while we were speaking. Additionally, the HR rep seemed to disappear after my conversation with the hiring managers who did not seem to know what to do with me after I finished the interview.
While the interview itself was relaxed and laid back, which I appreciated, the logistics of the how the interview was handled definitely showed a level of professionalism I was not comfortable with.
