INNOVATION AT LIO IS ABOUT CREATING VALUE THROUGH TRANSFORMATIONAL IDEAS THAT CREATE NEW CATEGORIES, CONVERT NEW CUSTOMERS, DISRUPT EXISTING MARKETS, AND ADVANCE GBG INTO A FUTURE OF RADICAL INNOVATION LEADERSHIP.
PROJECTS IN LIO RANGE FROM DEEP DIVE SOLO RESEARCH TO FULL SCALE DEVELOPMENT INITIATIVES THAT CALL ON THE SKILLS OF OUR ENTIRE TEAM. WE ARE DRIVEN BY EACH OF OUR UNIQUE OBSESSIONS, BUT MANY OF OUR INITIATIVES FALL INTO THE FOLLOWING CATEGORIES:
We believe that success happens when preparation meets opportunity.
To this end, our team engages in weekly training workshops to hone and expand our competencies across research, development, design, and marketing trends, tools, and approaches.
We partner with forward thinking agencies, incubators, and educators across industries to boost our knowledge and connect our ideas to larger movements in the global innovation ecosystem.
Members of LIO are promising thinkers, engineers, creators, and entrepreneurs recruited out of top universities for a yearlong placement in our Innovation Team.
At the end of their one year residency in LIO, each team member will have the opportunity to be placed within a division of Global Brands Group, where they will continue to drive change and lead our business into the future.
Meet the Team: LIO's Class of 2018
This is not a normal entry-level job, and our application process isn’t normal either. Instead of asking for your resume up front, we’re more concerned with finding out what you’re passionate about. We also know that information about first and last names and where you went to college can trigger subliminal bias in the candidate screening process. To guard against this and to encourage the most diverse group of candidates possible, we’re only taking your email contact information for this first step. Your email address will be hidden from our hiring team until a decision has been made to contact you.
