Edward Jones named Best Employer

SIDNEY — The financial services firm Edward Jones recently was named the No. 1 large company on the Best Employers in Ohio ranking, according to DiAnne Karas, a financial adviser in Sidney.

The Ohio SHRM State council teamed with the Best Companies group of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, and local partner, SHRM, to rank the state’s top 33 employers. Companies were named Best Employers in Ohio for 2018, divided into 24 large companies and nine small and medium-sized companies by the number of people they employ in Ohio.

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. For 12 consecutive years, Edward Jones has ranked in the top 15 Best Employers in Ohio.
