Penguin Random House, established in 2013, is the international home to more than 10,000 employees worldwide with operations in 20 countries across five continents. Globally, our mission is to foster a universal passion for reading by partnering with authors to help create stories and communicate ideas that inform, entertain, and inspire, and to connect them with readers everywhere. Our dedicated team is committed to helping authors realise their very best work and to finding innovative new ways of bringing stories and ideas to audiences, both in Australia and New Zealand, and worldwide. By leveraging our reach with readers, embracing new technologies, and collaborating with authors at every stage of the publishing process—from editorial and design, to sales and marketing, to production and distribution—we aim to provide them with the greatest platform possible.
With a rich history dating back to the 1800s, our expansive publishing portfolio contains books and products for readers of all ages at every stage of life. We’re also proud to count more than 70 Nobel Prize laureates and hundreds of the world’s most widely read authors as part of the Penguin Random House family.
Penguin Random House is committed to expanding our role as a cultural institution that serves society not only with the books we publish and investments we make in new ideas, creativity, and diverse voices, but also through our charitable donations and leadership of numerous campaigns and initiatives worldwide that promote literacy and reading culture, support freedom of expression, and reflect our belief in the power of books to connect and change lives.
