The financial-services firm Edward Jones was recently named the No. 1 large-sized company on the “Best Places to Work in Oklahoma” ranking, according to the firm’s two Ada investment representatives.

Oklahoma City Business teamed up with the Best Companies Group of Harrisburg, Ps., and local partners - the Society for Human Resource Management-Oklahoma, the Oklahoma Chamber of Commerce and the Oklahoma Department of Career and Technology Education - to rank the state’s best employers. Twenty-five companies were named “Best Places to Work in Oklahoma”, divided into 25 small and large companies based on the number of people they employ in Okla.

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 including, teamwork and individual experiences at the firm.

The “Best Places to Work in Oklahoma” honor is the most recent in a series of important recognitions the firm has received. For the seventh year, Edward Jones has been named one of the “100 Best Companies to Work for in America” by Fortune magazine.

Ada Edward Jones investment representatives are Ken Hoover at 222 E. 12th St. and Michael Millsap at 931 Arlington.
