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. 10 best workplace for millennials, a generation defined from the early 1980s through 2001.
This ranking comes from an anonymous survey of associates administered by the workplace culture experts at Great Place to Work®.
"As we grow our firm to serve succeeding generations of individual investors, we know that attracting and developing millennials is key to our long-term success," said Edward Jones Managing Partner Jim Weddle. "We offer a career destination and a business model that allows them to make a meaningful difference in the lives of our clients."
Edward Jones and the 99 other winning 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.
“Companies focused on solid growth understand that it’s critical for senior leaders to have an in-depth understanding of all their employees’ experiences, regardless of their age, role in the organization, or any other demographic profile,” says Michael Bush, CEO of Great Place to Work® United States. “Great workplaces are constantly monitoring and analyzing their employees’ workplace experiences and then taking action to improve them. Ranking on this list is a great indicator that these companies’ efforts to create great workplaces are resonating with millennials.”
