I bet you have people on your LinkedIn Company Page who do not actually work for you. Maybe they did, but left. Maybe they never did! Here's how you remove someone from your LinkedIn company page.
As a recruiter, you’ll know that the lovely staff number you see at the top of the Company page on LinkedIn is not a true reflection of who actually works there. You’ll go to that space and attempt to source from it. You use it to help you head hunt talent and find new clients. If you’re a recruitment leader you’ll use it to source talent for your own businesses.
If you’re a recruitment marketer or recruitment leader you’ll get pretty fed up of the fact that you can’t control who appears on your company page. You can’t stop anyone from adding themselves and you can’t nip into a leavers’ profile and redact your company. We all know that someone’s LinkedIn company profile is theirs and not even LinkedIn have the right to edit it.
Removing Randoms from Your Company LinkedIn Page
There is hope! You can actually get these "random" people who don't work for you removed. It takes a little time and effort, but it’s worth it.
I get that this depends upon the size of your business. If you employ thousands of people across the globe, keeping track of your company employees on LinkedIn is a big ask. I’d at least suggest you have a more robust starters and leavers process – and ensure that someone (anyone!) has responsibility for this task. I often go into businesses (either staffing companies or business with in-house recruitment teams) who have no idea who this job would sit with, and the page is out of control.
If you come across someone who doesn’t work in your business, you can begin the “removal of randoms” process by clicking this "Removing People from a LinkedIn Page" link.
Have a Process for your LinkedIn Company Page
There’s nothing stopping you from having a monthly process for checking your company page and looking for those randoms. Be sure to spend a little time on this. Random staff can make your business look random. They can make your business look bloated with fakers, have sector specialisms which are not appropriate, and overall have a negative impact on your ability to be taken seriously and trade.

Recruitment Marketing Event for Sales and ROI-Led Marketers
Recruitment Marketers need ROI from Marketing - whether it is more candidates, clients, colleagues, or cash... With that in mind, we presented the Marketing in Recruitment event with Members Only. It was for recruitment marketers who need to understand and prove ROI.Recruitment Marketers Need to Measure the Success of Their MarketingGenerating tangible ROI remains the holy grail for all recruitment marketers, but it can be a difficult goal to achieve. Simon at Members Only asked me to compere the event, so I used it as an opportunity to "pep talk" the marketers and their leaders.I talked about:The compelling reasons for sales and marketing to work together… 38% higher sales and 36% higher retention.How 98% of Marketers have experienced conflict with Sales at some point in their career and 73% of recruitment marketers are frustrated that their leaders just don't "get" them.What I think needs to happen for sales and marketing to be more connected and thus effective.If 60-70% of the content a marketer generates is never used, and 80% of leads are never followed up... what needs to happen?If 2/3 of the marketers who left their jobs last year said "not enough training", how on earth does the recruitment industry expect their marketers to generate any ROI?Read the slide deck from the event - food for thought?
