Company Overview

Since 1994, LRN has helped 15 million people in 700 companies worldwide simultaneously navigate complex legal and regulatory environments and foster ethical cultures. LRN's combination of practical tools, education and strategic advice helps companies translate their values into concrete corporate practices and leadership behaviors that create sustainable competitive advantage. In partnership with LRN, companies need not choose between living principles and maximizing profits, or between enhancing reputation and growing revenue: both are a product of principled performance.

We believe that enduring success is achieved through inspired, ethical leadership – regardless of tenure, job function, or position in an organizational chart. LRN’s culture is the end result of this belief—an environment created by a group of ethical leaders sharing core values and governing ourselves in pursuit of our goals.  As the basis of our shared values, the LRN Leadership Framework – which we invite all of our candidates to consider –defines, galvanizes, and unifies our culture.  It inspires and informs our conduct, whether we're collaborating with colleagues or partnering with clients.  At LRN this isn’t just talk; we aim to attract and hire people who share our core values, and value our mission.   

Ask yourself:

  • Are you passionate about inspiring principled, ethical performance?  Why?
  • Are you committed to constant learning and evolution, and do you want to take ownership of your career path?
  • Do you want to be stretched—both intellectually and in scope of responsibility—and operate outside your comfort zone?
  • Do you obsess over the impact your work is having beyond day-to-day tasks? 
  • Do you seek to understand not just what does and doesn’t work, but why—and HOW to make things work better?
  • Do you value humility, truth, and transparency? 

If so, we’re very much looking forward to meeting you.
