In the new book “The Alliance: Managing Talent in the Networked Age,” Hoffman and entrepreneurs Ben Casnocha and Chris Yeh explain how employers can attract and retain the best employees through the formation of alliances where everyone wins.
The authors created a presentation outlining their book’s main principles, which Hoffman and LinkedIn leaders have used to grow the company into a Silicon Valley powerhouse with a market cap of $US20 billion.
