In 2009, Netflix CEO Reed Hastings published a 124-page slide deck outlining how he hires, fires and rewards employees. The level of insight into the inner workings of a company’s culture was unprecedented, and Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg has since said the SlideShare “may well be the most important document ever to come out of the (Silicon) Valley.” It’s a very forward-thinking approach to culture that set off a movement for others to follow in Netflix’s footsteps.

More than 10 million views later, Hastings’ “Netflix Culture” has spurred a conversation among business leaders that’s at the backbone of every organisation: What is, or should be, a company’s culture? How do you create the perfect workplace? How do you attract and retain top talent that is the lifeblood of your company? What does it look like if we were to hold meaningful Core Values?

The Netflix Core Values listed in the Slide deck are

  • Judgement
  • Communication
  • Impact
  • Curiosity
  • Innovation
  • Courage
  • Passion
  • Honesty
  • Selflessness

Each of the Core Values has 4 short defining statements to provide clarity.

What this document does, in great detail is define exactly what it means to be a Netflix employee and how to conduct yourself.
