How does this playbook work?

This workflow automates the extraction of company headcount from LinkedIn profile URLs, streamlining market research and competitive analysis.
  • LinkedIn profile link
  • Company headcount information

This automation extracts the headcount of a company directly from a LinkedIn profile link using a specialized scraper model.

How Can You Determine a Company's Headcount on LinkedIn?

How to See Employees of a Company on LinkedIn

Finding out the headcount or viewing employees of a company on LinkedIn can be crucial for various professional reasons, ranging from market research, competitive analysis, to recruitment and networking. LinkedIn, being the largest professional network, offers several ways to explore company sizes and employee details directly from their platform. Here's how you can manually find this information on LinkedIn.

Looking to streamline your LinkedIn research? Automate the process of extracting company headcount and employee details with Bardeen. Try it now!

To find current employees, start by searching for the company's LinkedIn page. Once on the page, look for a link or section that mentions the number of employees. This section not only reveals the headcount but also allows you to click through to a list of current employees. You can further refine this list using LinkedIn's filter options to target specific roles, locations, or other criteria.

Finding former employees requires a different approach since their profiles won't be listed directly on the company page. Instead, use LinkedIn's search bar to perform a general search. Then, filter the results to show only people, and use the "All filters" option to specify the company under "Past company." This method helps you compile a list of professionals who have previously worked at the company, which can be invaluable for competitive analysis or understanding a company's alumni network.

Scrape LinkedIn Company Employees

For those looking to gather employee data at scale, scraping LinkedIn company employees might be a more efficient method. While LinkedIn's terms of service restrict the use of automated tools to scrape data, there are third-party tools and services that claim to offer this capability. These tools can potentially extract a list of current and former employees, including details such as names, positions, and profiles, which can then be exported to a spreadsheet for further analysis.

However, it's crucial to approach scraping with caution due to LinkedIn's strict policies against unauthorized data collection. A more compliant alternative involves using LinkedIn's official APIs or partnering with data providers that have legitimate access to LinkedIn data. These methods ensure that your data collection practices are in line with LinkedIn's usage policies and protect you from potential legal issues.

Automate your LinkedIn tasks responsibly with Bardeen, ensuring compliance with platform policies while enhancing your productivity. Get started today!
