Engaging content and the sad story of a slide deck

February 2016 | Culture, Employer Brand, Storytelling

A contact of mine was interested in working for Netflix.

She had heard about its great culture.

She was a fan of the product.

So she went looking for a job at Netflix.

Then she tripped over a slide deck on its LinkedIn page.

The slide deck was entitled ‘Netflix Culture: Freedom & Responsibility’.

It was 174 slides.  It began with some bullet points.

She didn’t get to the end.

She decided to try another internet business.

She’s very happy where she is.

She might well have been very happy at Netflix.

We’ll never know.

Just because of a slide deck.

 

PS – can I just say I love The House of Cards, before anyone accuses me of trying to get a free Amazon Prime subscription.
