Financial-services firm Edward Jones was recognized as one of the 100 Best Workplaces for Millennials in the country by Great Place to Work® and Fortune magazine.
Edward Jones ranked the No. 3 best workplace for millennials, a generation defined from the early 1981 through 2001.
"As our firm grows significantly, we can all feel particularly proud that we have maintained the values and culture that have set us apart from the beginning," said Edward Jones Managing Partner Jim Weddle. "Edward Jones offers a life-long career opportunity for the next generation of associates who want to make a difference in the lives of individual investors and their families. Millennials have much to offer our firm, and as a career destination we have much to offer them."
The ranking considered input from more than 434,000 employees from Great Place to Work-Certified™ companies. Great Place to Work, a research and consulting firm, evaluated more than 50 elements of team members’ experience on the job. These included employee pride in the organization’s community impact, belief that their work makes a difference, and feeling their work has special meaning.
Edward Jones and the 99 other companies were selected based on the evaluations of nearly 90,000 millennial-aged employees who were surveyed using the Trust Index©, Great Place to Work’s employee assessment survey. The 100 Best Workplaces for Millennials is part of a series of rankings by Great Place to Work® and Fortune based entirely on employee surveys from published Great Place to Work® Reviews.
"Great Place to Work is proud of these Best Workplaces that give their Millennial employees the tools they need to succeed," said Michael Bush, CEO of Great Place to Work. "Organizations like Edward Jones set the bar for other workplaces seeking to retain and develop the next generation of leaders, and prove that giving Millennials jobs with purpose and meaning drives them to give their best at work, benefiting the company as a whole."
