FORTUNE partners annually with Great Place to Work to conduct the most extensive employee survey in corporate America to identify the 100 Best Companies to Work For. Two-thirds of a company’s survey score is based on the results of the Trust Index Employee Survey, which is sent to a random sample of employees from each company. This survey asks questions related to their attitudes about management’s credibility, overall job satisfaction and camaraderie. The other third of the scoring is based on the company’s responses to the institute’s Culture Audit, which includes detailed questions about pay and benefit programs and a series of open-ended questions about hiring practices, internal communications, training, recognition programs and diversity efforts.
In addition to the FORTUNE honor, Edward Jones was ranked No. 1 on the People’s Picks: 20 Great Workplaces in Financial Services list by the workplace review web site, Great Rated! That ranking comes from an anonymous survey of Edward Jones associates and also was administered by the workplace culture experts at Great Place to Work.
