Alexandria, VA -- Motley Fool CEO and co-founder Tom Gardner has joined the LinkedIn "Influencer" program. Gardner published his first "Influencer" post, titled "Half Your Employees Hate Their Jobs," on Wednesday. The post, co-written with Motley Fool columnist Morgan Housel, highlighted three changes organizations should make to improve their workplace cultures.
"Peter Drucker said that culture eats strategy for breakfast," Gardner wrote. "Get your fork and knife and let's get to work!"
By joining the "Influencer" program, Gardner enters a community of the world's most profound and impactful thinkers. Notable LinkedIn "Influencers" include Richard Branson, Arianna Huffington, Bill Gates, and more. Gardner plans to write broadly about investing, general business, and other issues he and Motley Fool employees hold dear.
"We're thrilled for Tom to become a LinkedIn 'Influencer,'" Fool spokesperson Adrienne Perryman said. "We have a ton of respect for the community LinkedIn has created, and having Tom as a part of it will certainly help us further our mission of helping the world invest better."
