SAN FRANCISCO -- April 15, 2013

The Charles Schwab Corporation has been recognized for its employee-friendly
workplace through three separate awards received this month. In both
Indianapolis and Denver, Schwab has been named to the list of “Top Workplaces”
for each city. The Top Workplace program was developed by WorkplaceDynamics,
an independent research firm, in partnership with local publications that
include The Denver Post and Indianapolis Star, respectively.

Companies qualify for recognition as a Top Workplace solely based on employee
feedback. An employee survey is conducted by WorkplaceDynamics, LLP, a
research firm on organizational health and employee engagement.

The Top Workplace recognition follows closely on the heels of Schwab’s recent
receipt (April 3) of the Gallup Great Workplace award for the second year in a
row. This award recognizes companies that are among those with the most
productive and engaged workforces in the world. Applicants’ results are
compared across a workplace research database composed of millions of work
teams in more than 100 countries. A panel of workplace experts assesses the
applicants’ results to select the winners.

“Our focus across the organization is to help our clients achieve their
goals,” 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 an environment that genuinely engages
our people and reinforces the understanding that they are doing work that
matters. Accolades like this affirm that we are on the right path to creating
a fulfilling workplace where our employees can do the best work of their
careers.”

Schwab Employee Culture

For more than four decades, Schwab’s commitment to help people 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.

“’Schwabbies’, as we are often called, enjoy an inclusive and highly
collaborative work environment,” said Allen.“The things Schwab clients expect
of the company – trust, transparency and integrity – are the same values that
drive employees’ interactions with each other every day.Schwab’s culture of
service also extends into the communities in which employees live – through
volunteerism and philanthropy supported by both The Charles Schwab Corporation
and Charles Schwab Foundation.”

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 Schwab Bank products and employee brokerage account
services. 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.
