Just Do It - How To Turn Your Passion Into Innovation At Nike

Everyone knows Nike's tagline is “Just do it." But, as of January 2018, they've added a new slogan for those who work there: We are the people who do!" Innovation at Nike is what is going to help drive the business forward.


This Company Hires Doers, Are You One?

If you've ever dreamed of working for a company that allows your love of sport to be a part of your job, then you need to check out Nike's newly rebranded Careers site. Here are just a few of the reasons why:

Working for Nike is about blending your skills and beliefs with your passion for sport.

Nike's mission is to bring innovation and inspiration to every athlete in the world. Everyone is welcome at Nike and every team member has the ability to make a difference. One of the mantras they live by is, "If you have a body, you are an athlete." Couple this with your unique professional skills and you'll be a part of a company that is creating products that are beautiful and useful to everyone. This focus has resulted in Nike winning countless awards and accolades.

At Nike, the power of inclusion drives employee success.

Just look at all the pictures of the Nike campuses and you'll see it's made for sports enthusiasts - people who believe in teamwork and inclusion. It's no surprise they've made the Human Rights List 16 years in a row. If you want to work at Nike, then you have to have a deep connection to the important role sport plays in the life of happy and successful human beings.

The word “innovation" will become part of your workplace mantra.

World records are broken every year. People push past their personal bests to create new ones every day. At the core of this type of success is the idea of doing things in new and different ways - which is the very definition of the word "innovation." Whether you're an Architect, Data Whiz, Playmaker, or Sole Salvager, you'll find your skills being leveraged to the max.

Nike's benefits have no geographic boundaries.

While Nike is headquartered in Beaverton, Oregon, many can find their next job at Nike in other parts of the world. Nike is a global brand and has a global business presence. That means you could work in places you never dreamed of - until now. Better still, their benefits are world-class. Summer hours, transportation, their donation program where they match employees' charitable donations, and many other outside-the-box perks will make your job at Nike that much more rewarding!

Starting a family is one of the biggest milestones in a person's life. It's in those first few months when a parent can really bond with their newborn and make lifelong memories. However, for some new dads, it can be difficult to juggle being a new parent while remaining dedicated to their career.

Fortunately, some companies have generous paternity leave policies that give new dads the ability to take time off of work to stay home with their child.
