Employees Getting LinkedIn to Brazilian Jiu Jitsu

If you work at LinkedIn's San Francisco office not only do you have a job at one of the hottest tech companies in one of the most desired parts of the country, you get one more nearly indispensable benefit. Free BJJ classes. That's right, LinkedIn has mats ready to go at their corporate gym complete with company logo. I think most of us already know there isn't a much better way to end a long day at work than going to class and forgetting all the stress and frustration. And I imagine that choking out an annoying coworker or tapping your boss who's been giving you a hard time lately can only make training all the more satisfying. Of course you might not want to go too hard on them, you do have to work together the next day after all. Jokes aside, LinkedIn obviously realizes that keeping employees active and healthy and building camaraderie among them benefits both the company and the individual. What better way to achieve that than with BJJ?
