ST. LOUIS — Financial services firm Edward Jones, which has a branch in Lumberton, ranks fifth on the 2017 Fortune 100 Best Companies to Work For list.
It is Edward Jones’ 18th appearance on Fortune’s list, according to global research and consulting firm Great Place to Work and Fortune magazine.
Edward Jones, a Fortune 500 company, provides financial services for individual investors in the United States and, through its affiliate, in Canada.
To identify the 100 Best Companies to Work For, each year Fortune partners with Great Place to Work to conduct an extensive employee survey in corporate America. The ranking is based on feedback from more than 232,000 employees.
Winning a spot on this list indicates the company has distinguished itself from peers by creating a great place to work for employees — measured and ranked through analysis of the results of a trust index survey and Culture Audit questionnaire.
