Edward Jones Named One of the GTA's Best Employers

Edward Jones ranks 10th on the inaugural list

TORONTO, June 18 /CNW/ - Financial services firm Edward Jones was named to the No. 10 spot on the inaugural "Best Employers in the Greater Toronto Area" list by the Toronto Star newspaper.

"We work hard across the country, from remote towns to major metropolises, to be a best employer, so being recognized in our own backyard is very rewarding," says Gary Reamey, principal, Edward Jones Canada. "It is a great honour to be acknowledged by our financial advisors, branch office administrators and home office associates. Our headquarters are based in Mississauga and we are pleased to share this with everyone who contributes to the great work that we do for our clients."

The ranking appears in the June 19 issue of the Toronto Star in a stand-alone section both online and in print. The study was conducted by Hewitt Associates and Queen's University School of Business. Detailed questionnaires were distributed to employees, a comprehensive human resources practices survey was completed by the firm, and a leadership team survey was completed by top firm executives. Hewitt also examines how closely employees' and leaders' goals are aligned, and whether workplace practices and programs reinforce that corporate vision.

"We know that Edward Jones associates have a lot to give in the Greater Toronto Area and beyond, and we are focused on growing our branch-office network to bring our brand of excellent personalized client service to many more Canadian individual investors," Reamey says. "Providing service to investors drives everything the firm does, from its one-broker branch offices located within the communities where clients live and work to its long-term conservative investing philosophy. We bring that focus to our clients across the GTA and across the country."
