LinkedIn’s vision is to create economic opportunity for every employee of the Linkedin workforce, and the workforce movement and professional engagement data sitting underneath LinkedIn.com is the primary fuel to help LinkedIn more broadly execute on that mission. As the head of Global Insights for LinkedIn, Sarah’s organization provide Linkedin with relevant insights based on data to help better talent and business growth decisions.
