SAN FRANCISCO (Business Wire) -- The Charles Schwab Corporation has been recognized again for its employee-friendly workplace through three new awards received this month. In the San Francisco Bay Area, Cleveland, and state of Arizona, Schwab has been named to lists of great places to work. For the San Francisco Bay Area and Cleveland, the Top Workplaces program is conducted by WorkplaceDynamics, an independent research firm on organizational health and employee engagement, in partnership with local publications that include The San Jose Mercury News and Cleveland Plain Dealer, respectively. Each of those newspapers published its list of Top Workplaces yesterday, June 16. Additionally, Schwab has been named a CareerBuilder Top Company to Work for in the state of Arizona. This is a statewide program conducted by two other independent organizations: the Best Companies Group in partnership with CareerBuilder. The full list of Arizona top workplaces will be published in the Arizona Republic on June 23.

In Cleveland and the San Francisco Bay Area, companies qualified for recognition as a Top Workplace solely based on employee feedback through a survey conducted by WorkplaceDynamics. In Arizona, qualifying for the CareerBuilder Top Companies list was based on a combination of employee survey and extensive employer questionnaire.

“We are so proud to receive these new accolades and thank our fantastic employees for naming us to these lists,” said Jay Allen, executive vice president of human resources and employee services at Schwab. “We know that to be successful in all the ways we serve Schwab clients, we have to offer a workplace environment that genuinely engages employees to do great work. At Schwab, we measure ourselves not only by what we do, but also by how we do it. Our employees know that every action and each decision is based on our collective effort to build trust and see things through the eyes of our clients.”

Other recent workplace recognition received by Schwab includes:

  • The Gallup Great Workplace award (2013) for the second consecutive year.
  • The Denver Post Top Workplaces 2013
  • The Indianapolis Star Top Workplaces 2013
  • Military Edge magazine “Best for Vets” (2013) for the fourth consecutive year
  • Best Place to Work for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) Equality (2013), based on a 100 percent rating from the Human Rights Campaign on its annual Corporate Equality Index for the ninth consecutive year

Schwab Workplace

For more than four decades, Schwab's commitment to help Americans rethink investing has challenged the status quo and offered an alternative to traditional Wall Street investing. To support this, the company seeks forward-thinking, optimistic and driven individuals who are passionate about championing clients' goals and who want to work in an inclusive and highly collaborative work environment.

Schwab's benefits are designed to help employees stay healthy, save for long-term financial goals and balance the demands of work and their personal lives. Financial benefits include automatic enrollment in the company's 401(k) plan including company matching and profit-sharing contributions, an employee stock purchase plan, a matching gifts program for charitable contributions, and discounts on some products. Health & wellness benefits include medical, dental and vision plans; life insurance and disability income protection, as well as a health savings account. Work/life programs include paid vacation, holidays and a sabbatical program for eligible employees after five years of service.
