NuStar Ranked No. 10 on People Magazine’s List of “50 Companies That Care”

SAN ANTONIO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

People magazine today released its first-ever list of the country’s “50 Companies That Care,” and NuStar Energy (NS) came in at No. 10. This ranking was compiled by People and the consulting firm Great Place to Work, and is based on more than 368,000 surveys from individuals employed by U.S. businesses across a range of industries.

“As we always say when it comes to these type of honors, none of this would be possible without our employees’ commitment to giving back to our communities day in and day out,” said NuStar President & CEO Brad Barron. “We appreciate the role each of our employees play in continuing NuStar’s special caring and sharing culture that was created by our Chairman Bill Greehey. The ranking confirms what we have said throughout our company’s history, that we truly have the most caring employees in corporate America and around the globe.”

NuStar is the highest-ranked energy company and one of only two companies headquartered in San Antonio on the list. The Great Place to Work Institute analyzed surveys from nearly 1,000 companies to rank those that have succeeded in business while also demonstrating respect, compassion, and concern for their communities, their employees and the environment. They also took into account the employees’ personal stories about the difference their workplaces have made in their lives and in their communities, as well as the generosity of their organizations’ benefits, financial donations and volunteerism.

“What we found so striking about the Companies That Care was just how personal their employees’ stories were. These organizations go out of their way again and again to look after the well-being of their people, both day-to-day and during personal struggles when they need it the most,” said Kim Peters, executive vice president of Great Place to Work.

The Companies That Care is one of a series of rankings by Great Place to Work and its partner publications based on employee survey feedback from Great Place to Work–Certified™ organizations.
