SAN ANTONIO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–NuStar Energy L.P. (NYSE: NS) announced today that it ranked No. 9 on the “50 Best Workplaces for Giving Back” list, according to global research and consulting firm Great Place to Work® and Fortune Magazine.
NuStar is the second highest publicly traded company on the list, as well as the only company headquartered in San Antonio and the only energy company on the list. This recognition comes on the heels of NuStar recently being ranked No. 19 on the “100 Best Companies to Work For” list by Great Place to Work® and Fortune.
“We are fortunate to benefit from the special caring and sharing culture created by our Chairman of the Board Bill Greehey,” said NuStar President and CEO Brad Barron. “As he always says, you are not a success in life until you share your success with others. Our employees take those words to heart as last year they not only helped us achieve the highest EBITDA and distributable cash flow in our history, but also donated a record amount of time and money to worthy causes in our communities.”
Great Place to Work® analyzed surveys from nearly 600 companies to rank those that best create a sense of purpose and meaning among their employees through involvement in the community. Not only do these workplaces stand out for their generosity, their team members also express a great deal of pride in what their organizations accomplish. The Best Workplaces for Giving Back took into consideration feedback from about 240,000 employees in a diverse range of industries, as well as their companies’ volunteer programs and charitable giving relative to revenue.
“The Best Workplaces for Giving Back demonstrate more than just a commitment to charity,” said Kim Peters, executive vice president at Great Place to Work®. “These organizations have earned employees’ admiration by involving staffers in their community service efforts and contributing resources in ways that genuinely reflect their unique cultures.”
NuStar and the other winning companies were selected based on responses to the Trust Index©, Great Place to Work’s employee assessment survey. Employees rated their sense that they make a difference in their jobs, the meaningfulness of their work, and the impact they feel their organizations make in the community. The list also took into account company programs and an analysis of anonymous employee comments about their workplaces.
