Netflix: employee count 2020

As of 2020, Netflix employed approximately 9,400 full-time workers, over double the number recorded in 2016. With the help of these employees, 2020 proved to be the company’s most successful year to date, bringing in record numbers in terms of annual revenue.

Employment at Netflix

Since the company’s humble beginning as an online DVD rental platform in 1998, Netflix has grown in both size and scope to become the major player in the entertainment industry that it is today. With operations in nearly every country around the world, Netflix has expanded from an exclusively U.S. based company to a truly global enterprise. Given the progressively global scope of the company’s business over the years, Netflix has begun to create an increasingly diverse base of employees.

Employee diversity is particularly important within the entertainment industry as consumers have grown to expect larger companies to provide equal opportunities for minority groups, including an even distribution of men and women in the workplace. Equally, as viewing preferences vary greatly across countries, cultures and languages, in order to appeal to a global audience Netflix must diversify its content from region to region.
