Our People

ConocoPhillips and our people

We are focused on empowering our employees to achieve success for ConocoPhillips, our partners, our customers, and the communities in which we work. We build our culture of employee empowerment by providing opportunities for professional and personal growth, recognizing employee achievements, creating an open, collaborative, and healthy work environment, and helping our employees maintain a healthy work-life balance. Attracting and retaining a skilled, experienced, and motivated workforce is essential to the long-term growth of our business.

ConocoPhillips’ SPIRIT Values set the tone for how we interact with our stakeholders, and our objective is to ensure our employees work in an environment that reflects our core SPIRIT values. Click here to read more about our SPIRIT values.

Emerging as an independent exploration and production company on May 1, 2012, gave us a unique opportunity to examine the future ConocoPhillips and further develop our culture. Part of this initiative was embedding our Leadership Competencies, which are the leadership behaviors that define the ‘new’ ConocoPhillips. These competencies are important at all levels of the organization, and we are responsible for understanding these competencies and identifying and cultivating competencies most important for workplace success.
