L&D At Netflix With Kenny Temowo

View descriptionShare

What’s it like to lead L&D at one of the world’s most renowned and successful companies? Netflix has grown into an international powerhouse of home entertainment and is almost as famous for its people practices as its product. In this episode we lift the lid on L&D at Netflix and explore what development looks like at this aspirational and ambitious brand.


  • The culture informs everything Netflix does.
  • Netflix takes a different approach to performance management.
  • At Netflix the culture is innovation, L&D emanates from that culture.
  • Ongoing feedback is a key component of Netflix culture.
  • Onboarding is extensive and immerses people in all areas of the business.
  • Because they have a global workforce there are some cultural differences, but the important principles are the same across the entire company.
  • It is cheaper to develop and promote from within, which Netflix does a lot.
  • Don’t be afraid to push the boundaries.

'We talk a lot in Netflix around good processes.'

'You cannot make a distinction between the technical skills or industry knowledge and culture.'

'We do a good job of codifying the culture.'
