Edward Jones has been ranked No. 3 among the 100 Best Large Workplaces for Millennials in 2022 by Great Place to Work® and Fortune® magazine list (published July 2022). The firm was the highest-ranking financial services firm on the list of 100 large companies.
The survey reinforced the importance millennials place on having purpose in their work. The data as of March 15, 2022, showed that purpose represents the biggest gap between millennials and older generations. With our purpose — to partner for positive impact, to improve the lives of our clients and colleagues, and together, better our communities and society – as Edward Jones’ North Star, the firm is especially proud to be ranked on this list.
Edward Jones Financial Advisor and millennial, Alyssa Jennings, agreed with the survey findings on priorities for millennials. “Partnering with clients to help them achieve what is financially most important to them is one of many ways we live out our purpose every day,” said Jennings. “Our shared purpose enables each of us to make a meaningful impact.”
Great Place to Work based its ranking on a data-driven methodology applied to a confidential survey of more than 1 million respondents who work at Great Place to Work-certified organizations. Survey statements collectively described a great associate experience, defined as high levels of trust, respect, credibility, fairness, pride and camaraderie. Responses were compared across generations.
“Our shared purpose enables each of us to make a meaningful impact.”
-Alyssa Jennings, Edward Jones Financial Advisor
