The three companies have been recognized on the list in previous years, with USAA appearing for the 12th time since Fortune first published the list in 1998.  

“We continuously invest in our employees and provide them the resources needed to fulfill our mission and stand with our members when they need us,” said USAA CEO Stuart Parker. “This recognition is as much about the everyday effort of our employees as it is the culture we strive to create.”

NuStar was one of only two energy companies to be named to this year’s list.

“This ranking is a testament to their positive, can-do spirit, and we are very appreciative of all that they do to operate our business safely and reliably and position our company for the future,” said NuStar President and CEO Brad Barron.
