Awards and Recognition[edit]

News[edit]

BELFOR's CEO Sheldon Yellen was featured 2011 in CBS's primetime show Undercover Boss. More than 13 million viewers watched as Yellen took an emotional journey through the everyday lives of four BELFOR employees. As he worked side by side disguised as an unemployed insurance salesman, Yellen witnessed firsthand on-the-job trials and personal struggles that each employee faced on a daily basis. During his own struggle with physically demanding challenges in difficult jobsite situations, he revealed his true identity in an emotional moment to reassure a dedicated employee that her work with the company was appreciated, Yellen was reminded of the many contributions that BELFOR employees make for the company on a daily basis. He now reminds his management team that they must be in touch with the needs of all employees, and he has vowed to become more involved beyond the corporate office.

Sheldon’s expressive demeanor, as well his concern for his employees, was so powerful that the episode received an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Reality Program in 2011.
