Many professionals need at some point to study companies and find information about their employees. LinkedIn is the biggest professional social network, and we can use it to find almost every employee of any companies in the world. So, how do we find those company employees on the web in 2022?
This tutorial will help beginners and more advanced salespeople, recruiters, or anyone with next to no technical skills find all the employees of any company: Names, roles, and much more!
How to find the employees of a company on LinkedIn?
To find the employees of a company on LinkedIn is pretty easy. Before you get started, make sure you have a LinkedIn account. LinkedIn’s pages are only accessible to registered users! Once you’re logged in, follow these steps:
Step 1 – Search for the company you’re interested in. Locate the search bar and type in the name of the company you’re interested in. Use the “Type of results” (Company, person, page, etc.) and “Industry” (Wholesale, Entertainment, etc.) helpers to avoid homonyms.
Step 2 – Select the company in the results list. Click on the name of the company that you want to find employees of in the list. In our case, it’s the first one. Easy!
Step 3 – Find the employee’s count. Locate the “See all 1000 employees” button on the company’s page and click on it.
Step 4 – Here you go! You’ve just found all the names of the employees of a company. Use this information responsibly, a great power comes with great responsibility!
Now that you have that list, you might need to use it. To filter down that list of company employees and perhaps filter them by roles, location, and more, you’ll need to filter it down. That’s what we’re tackling in the next paragraph.
How to list employees by names, roles, and more?
Find former employees of a company
By default, LinkedIn gives us a list of all the employees currently working in said company. What about if we want to find every single employee that ever worked there? Or just former employees?
To do this, click on the “All filter” button. This panel helps you restrict employees on the list to whatever criteria are useful to you. In our case, we’ll tick or untick the “Current company” or “Past Company” check boxes as so:
Find employees by roles in the company
A very useful way of filtering results is to use the “Role” filter. Type in the role given to the employees that are interesting to you, click apply filters and obtain a list of all the currently employed people in that company working at this exact role.
Pro trick: Do advanced searches by looking for multiple terms
What if you’re looking for any employee in the company that’s either at marketing or an accounting role? If you look for someone using the “marketing accounting” query in the “Title” filter, it’s most likely that you’ll find no one.
Rather than that, use the OR operator between each term. Like below. This will allow you to find employees in that company that have any of the terms that you list:
How to export the list of employees of a company to Excel or any spreadsheet?

Step 5 – Specify roles and other options. Then specify the roles if you want to restrict your list of employees to some specific roles. Use the trick above if you want to extract people with multiple roles/titles.
Step 6 – Launch the automation! Once you’re done setting up your automation, just click “Launch” and let TexAu do the hard work for you. It’ll extract all the information you need to a CSV file that you can later use with Excel, Numbers, Google Spreadsheet, or import in your CRM.
How to find more data on each employee of the company?
Extracting the employees of a company is Step 1. But what if you want to have more information: Email, phone number, social media contacts, previous companies, education, groups, interests, etc.?
TexAu allows you to plug each automation’s results into another automation. So you can use the employees found with the strategy above and the use LinkedIn Profile Scraper to extract more data on each employee. Your CRM is finally going to look so, so, good 😉
