Hint of the Day
I frequently get asked “Why don’t my employees show up on my LinkedIn Company Page?”
It seems so simple once you know how. You have created your Company Page and uploaded your Logo to it (if you haven’t that will be another hint post for me to do) but your employees don’t show and even your own profile doesn’t show your logo. Why?
First, go to your own profile and follow these steps.
Go to edit profile. Scroll down to the position that lists your company. (Fraser Valley Training Group in my case). Click on the edit crayon icon and then clear the name or click Change Company Name and start typing it over again. It needs to read as your company name (E.G.Fraser Valley Training Group) but in order to show on the Company page you need to watch the screen as you are typing as you enter letters because a drop down box will appear with lots of companies in it. As you keep entering letters that drop down box will continue to change. Eventually, before you get to the end you will see your company name (Fraser Valley Training Group) in the drop down box. At that point, stop typing and click on the name in the drop down box and it will auto fill including the company logo assuming that you have one on your Company Page.
To finish click save and then go to the done editing button near the top of your profile and click done editing.
Do that and you it will automatically put you on the Company Page. It will also put the logo from the Company Page to the right of your position.
I have cut and pasted the instructions below from the LinkedIn help menu just in case my instructions above are insufficient.
Adding Employees to Your Company Page
How do I add current employees to my Company Page?
Employees are linked to a Company Page when they add or edit a position on their profile and select a specific name from the company drop down list. Note: If they don’t click a company name in the drop down list, they won’t show as affiliated to the Company Page.
If a colleague is not showing in the list of employees on your company page, send them the following instructions:
- Move your cursor over Profile at the top of your home page and select Edit Profile.
- Scroll down to the Experience section and click the Edit icon next to the position listed at your current company.
- Click Change Company and type the full company name.
- Important: This step is crucial. Click the correct company name in the drop down list.
- Fill out any additional fields as prompted. A website address is not required.
- Click Save.
