SAN FRANCISCO -- June 17, 2013

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, butalso 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
