Financial services firm Edward Jones once again has been named a top company for training, ranking No. 11 on Training magazine’s 2011 Training Top 125 list.
Edward Jones, which has advisers in Davis, has been recognized on the list for 11 years in a row, dating back to the debut of the Training Top 50 in 2001.
Edward Jones not only moved up the ranking to No. 11 from No. 31 last year, but also received special recognition for achieving one of the top scores in the evaluation and business-metric section of the firm’s application.
The 2011 rankings and special recognitions were announced at a Feb. 7 awards dinner during the magazine’s Training 2011 Conference and Expo in San Diego.
“Edward Jones works constantly to provide our industry’s best client service,” said Edward Jones Managing Partner James D. Weddle, in a news release. “Training throughout our careers helps us deliver that. Edward Jones is being recognized for doing what it believes is right for our clients, the firm and for those of us who work here.”
The firm has consistently earned high marks as an employer of choice in other national rankings. For the 12th year, Edward Jones was named one of Fortune magazine’s 100 Best Companies to Work For 2011. The firm took the No. 11 overall spot on the prestigious list, also was named to the No. 2 spot for large companies and was the highest ranking financial services firm. And for the third time, Edward Jones financial advisers ranked the firm highest in employee adviser satisfaction among financial investment firms, according to a 2010 study by J.D. Power and Associates.
