Business North Carolina magazine teamed up with the Best Companies Group of Harrisburg, Pa., to rank the state’s top 45 employers. Companies named Best Employers in North Carolina for 2018 were divided into 18 large companies and 27 medium and small companies based on the number of people they employ in North Carolina.
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 seven years, Edward Jones has ranked in the top five Best Employers in North Carolina.
