Leading wealth management firm named in top workplace lists from Seattle Business magazine and Puget Sound Business Journal
Brighton Jones, a unique wealth management firm that is fueled by a deep understanding of the people it serves, was recently named to two prestigious lists celebrating workplace culture and employee satisfaction.
The firm was ranked on Seattle Business magazine’s listing of Washington’s 100 Best Companies to Work For in 2016, while also being named one of Washington’s Best Workplaces for 2016 by the Puget Sound Business Journal. Brighton Jones has now been named one of Seattle Business’ 100 Best Companies to Work For nine years in a row.
“Our mission is to help clients, colleagues and community members live richer lives,” said Jon Jones, CEO of Brighton Jones. “Supporting employees, both professionally and personally, while looking for opportunities that enable them to grow keeps us true to our mission. We work hard to maintain a culture that fosters collaboration and creativity and hiring and retaining talented people is a top priority. We know our people are the key to our success. It is a tremendous honor to be recognized for our efforts in this area by such reputable publications as Seattle Business magazine and the Puget Sound Business Journal.”
Now in its 27th year, the Seattle Business magazine 100 Best Companies to Work For program seeks to honor the Washington companies that are setting the standard for leadership, benefits, work environment, training programs and more. The publication announced the winners at an awards party on June 23 at the Washington State Convention Center and they will be featured in the July 2016 edition of Seattle Business.
The Puget Sound Business Journal’s 2016 Washington’s Best Workplaces honors 20 businesses with between 50 and 99 full-time employees. To make the list, companies must be nominated and then agree to have employees participate in a workplace satisfaction survey by Quantum Workplaces, providing feedback on topics that address things like office culture, training and growth opportunities, and whether or not employees feel respected at work.
The honorees will be saluted at an awards event August 11 at Safeco Field and the complete rankings will be published in a special report in the Puget Sound Business Journal on August 12.
“We are committed to providing our team with opportunities to grow holistically. We want to help our employees accomplish their career goals and are proud to offer personalized development plans and continuing education opportunities to support their growth,” said Charles Brighton, CFP®, CEO at Brighton Jones. “We also strive to provide a culture of wellbeing, work-life balance and a sense of community. The fact that we have been ranked on both of these prestigious lists reaffirms that we are meeting these objectives.”
