Published 9:42am Monday, February 25, 2013

The financial services firm Edward Jones recently was named the No. 1 company on the “Best Companies to Work for in North Carolina” ranking, according to Polk County Edward Jones financial advisors Jay Geddings and Sue Watson.

Business North Carolina magazine teamed up with the Best Companies Group of Harrisburg, Pa., and local partner – NCSHRM – to rank the state’s best employers. A total of 21 companies were named Best Employers in North Carolina for 2013, divided into seven large companies and 14 small-medium companies.

The ranking was based on an employer inventory of practices and an anonymous survey of employees, who were asked to agree or disagree with dozens of statements about the firm, teamwork and their individual experience at the firm. This is the second time Edward Jones has ranked No. 1 in the Best Employers in North Carolina ranking.
