Texas’ NuStar Energy upped its ranking this year on Fortune Magazine’s “50 Best Workplaces for Giving Back,” moving from No. 9 last year to No. 2 on the 2017 list.
The company also held a successful United Way campaign and a golf classic which raised over $4 million for San Antonio’s Haven For Hope.
The ranking, done by Great Places To Work, is compiled by reviewing over 357,000 employee surveys from a wide variety of businesses and an examination of a company’s charitable giving and programs.
“Being included on this prestigious list is a direct result of our employee’s outstanding commitment to helping those who are less fortunate in our communities and our special caring and sharing culture that was created by our Chairman Bill Greehey,” NuStar President and CEO Brad Barron said. “The ranking confirms what we have said throughout our company’s history, that we truly have the most generous employees in corporate America"
Barron said that NuStar’s over 1,600 employees raised $2.8 million which was one of the biggest per capita United Way donations in the U.S.
“Our rise to the list is also not surprising considering that we had a record year in terms of volunteerism and charitable contributions from our company and our employees," he said.
