Financial-services firm Edward Jones was named one of America's Top Workplaces by WorkplaceDynamics, according to Constance Peters, Financial Advisor in the Pelham NY branch of Edward Jones.
Edward Jones was ranked No. 16 nationwide among 872 organizations with more than 1,000 employees that participated in regional top workplaces programs.
The National Top Workplaces list was determined solely by feedback gathered through an objective employee survey. The survey was conducted by WorkplaceDynamics, LLP, the leading on-demand employee survey provider, in conjunction with 30 leading regional newspapers.
The survey uses a proprietary set of 22 questions to rank companies. The survey data showed that employees most want to work at companies with high levels of organizational health. Companies that set a clear direction for their future, execute well and bring real meaning to work are the healthiest, according to the survey.
