Welcome to 90 Seconds with Catapult Leaders.

Why “90 Seconds”? Because it doesn’t take long to get it right.

Let’s talk about what your company’s LinkedIn page communicates to diverse candidates.

92% of diverse job applicants check out your company’s LinkedIn business page to get a feel for the company culture.

Here is a good, a bad, and an ugly example of how company LinkedIn pages present themselves to diverse talent.

The Good:

Visibly diverse employees in leadership positions

The Bad:

Your Company’s Page shows only one type of diversity

The Ugly:

Lack of diversity in the “top leadership” jobs

Guilty of the bad and ugly?

That means you have a great starting point from which to improve.

Get your LinkedIn Company Page right because it is very difficult – and I speak from experience – for Catapult Leaders to convince outstanding diverse talent that your company is not what it shows itself to be on LinkedIn.

An off-putting LinkedIn page does not scream meritocracy.

That’s a system that needs to be fixed.

Don’t want your sympathy. Understanding is a start.

That’s it. 90 Seconds comes at you fast!
