Published on

The Motley Fool is a company that is firmly committed to putting its people at the center. And when its internal "culture" committee decided an update to its social intranet was in order, everyone rallied behind the effort and brought Jingle to life. Since then Jingle has become a vibrant community where coworkers get a chance to connect and collaborate.
