Jones was named a winner of Best Places to Work for the mega-large category by the MS Business Journal for the fifth consecutive year. Companies who rank highest in employee satisfaction based on results from anonymous engagement surveys earn the Best Places to Work recognition
“As far back as 1949, the “why” of Jones has been to enhance lives through job creation and by making Jones a more fulfilling place to work for our employees and their families. It’s always an honor to be named a “Best Place to Work” because it means we are fulfilling that purpose,” said Jonathan Jones, CEO, Jones Capital.
Jones empowers employees to achieve mental, physical, nutritional, and financial excellence through talent development programs tailored exclusively for their portfolio of companies. Jones is also investing in enhancing employee experience by breaking ground on a state-of-the-art, 90,000 sq ft corporate headquarters later this year. The new building will feature a conference center, employee work lounge, and multiple balconies that will overlook the mid-town plaza.
