For the third consecutive year, the San Francisco 49ers have been named to the Bay Area News Group Top Workplaces list, which recognizes the best and most rewarding work environments for employees throughout the greater Bay Area. The 49ers were one of 100 companies and organizations recognized by the Bay Area News Group as a Top Workplace in 2017.
These companies have been recognized as Top Workplaces based solely on surveys about the workplace completed by their employees.
“Receiving this recognition is a testament to the daily efforts and pride every member of the 49ers family takes in their contributions to the organization, Levi’s Stadium, and the greater Bay Area,” said 49ers President Al Guido. “I’m so proud of our players, alumni and staff for their dedication to making the franchise a top workplace.”
One of the most storied and successful franchises in the NFL, the 49ers also commit their time and energy to being good community stewards year-round. In 2016 alone, the 49ers organization – from players, to alumni, coaches, ownership, executives and staff – supported 75 community outreach events, representing more than 1,200 hours of service across the San Francisco Bay Area, and committed more than $4 million to local non-profits.
For the third year in a row, the 49ers are also one of four finalists for the Sports Humanitarian Team of the Year Award, which represents a sports team that demonstrates how teamwork between athletes and their team’s community relations or foundations can create a significant impact on a community or cause. The winner – announced at the Third Annual Sports Humanitarian Awards sponsored by Bristol-Myers Squibb on July 11th – will be able to direct a $100,000 grant from ESPN to the qualified charity related to the award-winning humanitarian efforts. The finalists will be able to direct a $25,000 grant to the charity related to their award-winning efforts.
In recognition of their tremendous commitment to philanthropy, the San Francisco 49ers were recognized with the Beyond Sport 2015 Sport Team of the Year and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation’s 2013 Steve Patterson Award for Sports Philanthropy.
