Top Independent Staffing Company Proves Community Commitment with Social and Fiscal Philanthropic Investment

Nelson announced today that it has been ranked 18 out of 100 participants on the San Francisco Business Times’ 2017 Bay Area Corporate Philanthropists List which was published in a San Francisco Business Times supplement on July 21. Nelson also received special recognition as one of two companies that bettered their position tremendously from previous years due to increased contributions.

The Corporate Philanthropy Awards celebrate the Bay Area’s most generous corporate citizens and recognizes those companies that give their time, talent and resources. The annual list recognizes 100 top corporate philanthropists ranked by local cash giving. It includes for-profit companies that made contributions to Bay Area-based charitable organizations in the following counties: San Francisco, San Mateo, Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, Napa, Santa Clara, Solano and Sonoma.

Nelson’s Executive Vice President, Joe Madigan, accepted the award on behalf of Nelson at the awards presentation hosted at the Hilton in Union Square. Joe also attended the discussion and networking panel, where he deliberated with other Bay Area leaders about how companies can involve employees to become philanthropic leaders like Nelson.

“Since our founding in 1970, Nelson has led by example when it comes to community engagement and philanthropic support,” said Joe. “I’m proud to work for a company that truly cares about the communities where employees live, work, and play. We are honored to be included in this list alongside so many other companies that share this fiscal and social commitment to the communities we serve.”

Nelson exemplifies it’s company values of empathy, integrity, excellence, and innovation through its actions. A Bay Area Philanthropy Award winner for each of the past four years, the company has contributed more than $4.5 million throughout that time to Bay Area philanthropic organizations and causes.
