ST. LOUIS – Financial-services firm Edward Jones once again has been named a top company for training, ranking No. 21 on Training magazine's 2018 Training Top 125 list. In its 18th consecutive appearance on the list, Edward Jones also won a coveted Best Practice award.
Edward Jones was the top-ranked financial services firm and moved up eight places from last year’s ranking on the prestigious list.

It was the third time in 18 years that Edward Jones won special recognition by winning one of only 10 annual awards for best practices and outstanding initiatives.
Training magazine announced the honored companies at Feb. 12 events during its Training 2018 Conference & Expo in Atlanta, GA. The magazine calls honored companies “game changers,” who look for innovative ways to deliver and measure employee training, and are rewarded with an engaged, passionate workforce and organizational success.
"We offer industry-leading training because it is essential to our branch teams successfully offering clients a unique experience to achieve their goals," said Jim Weddle, managing partner of Edward Jones. "Great training leads to great service and satisfied clients. That’s our mission."
Edward Jones consistently earns high marks as an employer of choice in national rankings. For the 18th year, Edward Jones was named one of FORTUNE magazine’s "100 Best Companies to Work For 2017." The firm took the No. 5 overall spot on the exclusive ranking. Also in 2017, Great Place to Work® and FORTUNE named Edward Jones the No. 3 Best Workplace for Women, No. 4 in Financial Services and Insurance, No. 6 for Parents and No. 46 for Giving Back.
