Edward Jones has been honored as a top training company for 12 years in a row, dating back to the debut of Training Magazine’s Training Top 50 in 2001.
For 2012, Edward Jones was the top-ranked national brokerage on the list and won special recognition for its financial advisor training, which enrolls nearly 200 trainees monthly. Edward Jones’ Practice Makes Perfect initiative, which significantly increased role playing in training programs for recruits from all walks of life, improving their success rates, won one of five best practice awards.
The 2012 rankings and special recognitions were announced at a Feb. 13 awards dinner during the magazine’s Training 2012 Conference and Expo in Atlanta, Ga.
The firm has also won other awards recently. For the 13th year, Edward Jones was named one of Fortune magazine’s “100 Best Companies to Work for 2012.” The firm also took the no. 5 overall spot in the ranking and also was named to the no. 3 spot for large companies.
Edward Jones provides financial services for individual investors in the United States and, through its affiliate, in Canada.
