In a blog post, LinkedIn product manager Caroline Gaffney said that the redesign will offer "quick access to the relevant information and updates" that help users of the site "be great at their job".
The new look brings a simpler and more modern design to the homepage experience, improving navigation between the pages and the updates - whether that may be shared news stories from key contacts or updates on people who have changed jobs.
The most important network updates and articles are now flagged at the top of the feed, highlighting trending topics, news stories and professional updates based on what is being followed and discussed.
"This means, you'll be spending less time hunting for information you need to be prepared for your workday and spending more time being great at the job you're in," said Gaffney.
The listed social network - which suffered a major security breach last month - has also refreshed the way updates look and feel in the stream, introducing richer visuals for easier scanning and viewing.
Working similarly to Facebook, users can now see a continuous stream of updates without having to click the "see more" tab.
They can also engage in the discussion by liking, commenting or sharing the updates that are most relevant to them.
"We're always looking for new ways to make the homepage experience better, more efficient and a place where you can come everyday to get what you need to be productive and successful," said Gaffney.
"This is just the beginning of many more exciting, new features we plan to bring to the homepage to offer more customisation and functionality this year.
"We look forward to making the LinkedIn homepage your go-to destination to discover and discuss what matters to you, your industry and your professionals network around the world."
The homepage redesign is rolling out "gradually" to LinkedIn's more than 161 million members over the next few weeks.
