Retaining Culture and Scaling Leadership in a Hypergrowth Environment

Facebook is experiencing hypergrowth in terms of innovation, products and people.  How do we remain true to the core values, philosophies and behaviours that have brought us here yet simultaneously continue to evolve and innovate in a positive and authentic way?  How can we ensure that we remain ‘great place to work’ and not just evolve into another ‘big company’? This presentation will provide insight into L&D’s core priorities, frameworks and challenges at a time when almost 40% of our organization has worked in our organization for less than 1 year.

Facebook’s Values and Philosophies; Facebooks Leadership behaviours; Onboarding best practices; Manager expectations and development; Instilling a ‘strength-based’, ownership, entrepreneurial culture in teams that at the same time embraces authenticity and diversity and is open to failure as a mode to learn, develop and ultimately succeed.
