The culture: Work-life balance is key: “As a firm believer in a work-life balance, our company encourages employees to support their personal pursuits, whether that be taking advantage of the mountains we live in, continuing education opportunities, or their family.”

Perks: R.A. Nelson offers a scholarship program to employee dependents from first grade through college. It also supports employee continuing education opportunities.

Giving back: The Summit County general contractor supports numerous local nonprofits with a focus on assisting local children and youth programs. Last year, R.A. Nelson donated nearly $80,000 to local charities, and staff donated their time to help with highway clean-up of its adopted two-mile “ECO Trail” section, organized the company-sponsored Turkey Trot for the Youth Foundation, and built homes with Habitat for Humanity. Other supported charities include Walking Mountains Science Center, Eagle River Youth Coalition and the Bright Future Foundation.

The inside scoop: “For the past several years, we have been supporting the education in Nepal of the nephew of one of our employees, who is working toward his bachelor’s in Hospitality Hotel Management in the International School of Tourism and Hotel Management,” a company member said. “R.A. Nelson’s support over the years has given him the opportunity to have an education to support himself and his family that he would not have had otherwise.”
