The "100 Best Workplaces for Millennials" is part of a series of rankings based entirely on employee surveys.
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, according to the three Edward Jones financial advisors in Fernandina Beach.
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.”
