SAN ANTONIO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Apr. 4, 2023--
NuStar Energy L.P. (NYSE: NS) announced today that it has once again been recognized as one of the 100 Best Companies to Work For® by Great Place To Work® and Fortune Media for 2023. NuStar has been named to this prestigious list 13 times, and is the only San Antonio-based company, one of only two energy companies, and one of 10 Texas-based companies on this year’s list.
To determine the 100 Best Companies to Work For, Great Place To Work analyzed the anonymous survey responses of more than half a million employees from Great Place To Work Certified®-certified companies with at least 1,000 workers. Companies also submitted essays describing their efforts to offer generous and innovative support for workers, which were validated against employee survey responses.
“This recognition is a testament to the caring and sharing culture established by our Chairman Emeritus, Bill Greehey, and embodied by our employees across the country,” said NuStar Chairman and CEO Brad Barron.
“Last year’s results are a great example of the many benefits of our employee-first corporate culture,” said Barron. “It not only makes NuStar a better, safer and more enjoyable place to work, it also makes the company more successful. Because of our employees’ dedication and commitment, our operations performed extremely well across our entire system, and our safety and environmental record continued to be significantly better than our industry. As a result, our net income, earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) and distributable cash flow all increased year-over-year; we had the highest fourth quarter net income and EBITDA in NuStar’s history; and we continued to set the pace for giving back to the communities where we have operations,” he said.
Earning a spot on this list means that NuStar has surpassed rigorous benchmarks, establishing itself as one of the best places to work in the country. According to the survey, 90 percent of NuStar employees said it is a great place to work compared to 57 percent of employees at a typical U.S. company. NuStar employees gave high ratings for the company’s commitment to providing special and unique benefits, giving back to the community, having a no-layoff policy, making new employees feel welcome, being able to take time off from work, and making employees feel like family.
“It’s in times like these that the best workplaces separate themselves,” says Michael C. Bush, CEO of Great Place To Work.
“In a challenging economy, many companies reduce investments in their people and scale back goals for diversity, equity, and inclusion. But these companies, the 100 Best, relentlessly pursue a better work experience for every employee, and if anything, double down on the employee experience regardless of title, tenure, gender, or ethnicity. These companies know this is how you increase performance, productivity, and your innovation velocity when your firm needs it the most.”
This recognition comes on the heels of the announcement that Newsweek named NuStar one of “America’s Most Trustworthy Companies 2023” and Latino Leaders Magazine also recently named the company on its list of the “25 Best Companies For Latinos to Work.”
