Our purpose here at The Motley Fool is to make the world smarter, happier, and richer. And that starts with making our own employees (whom we lovingly call “Fools”) smarter, happier, and richer.
Achieving that goal is more important than ever as we all deal with the fallout of COVID-19.
Our purpose isn’t to make Fools work harder, faster, and then even harder (while also homeschooling kids, caring for elders, and contending with anxiety). As our CEO has emphasized during our weekly all-company Zoom meetings, we want all Fools to make their health and safety a higher priority over work.
So imagine how it warmed our hearts when we read this comment in our recent engagement survey:
If crisis reveals character–and I believe it does–then the connections and care I’ve witnessed and been a part of are a testament to the quality of the people at our company. I believe we are unmatched as a collective group of truly good hearted humans.
In all seriousness, we got a little teary-eyed when we read it.
Oh! We also made Inc.’s List of the Best Places to Work. That was nice to read this week, too.
We think we see a connection here. How do you land on Inc.’s Best Workplaces list? Assemble a group of truly good-hearted humans, support them wholly, and trust them to achieve great things together. It’s just that Foolish.
