A Commitment to Ongoing Training and Development

At H&P, we’re dedicated to ongoing training and development. This ensures our employees feel supported and prepared throughout their career, and it allows for the development of future managers and leaders from within our organization. We’re so committed to these efforts, in fact, that we formed an organizational development team to take on the responsibility of talent management and training and development. In addition to general career and safety training efforts, the team creates, manages and implements enhancements to development and succession plans, mentoring and change management initiatives, and diversity and inclusion programs.

For new employees, training starts with comprehensive onboarding procedures that focus on safety, responsibility, ethical conduct and inclusive teamwork.

Compliance with our Code of Business Conduct and laws applicable to our business, including:
  • The importance of creating an inclusive environment that provides equal opportunity for all employees and avoids illegal discrimination

  • The importance of individual responsibility in meeting our Code's requirements and taking action when needed, including reporting

  • The Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, trade controls and anti-boycott training for appropriate employees

  • Skills and competencies directly related to an employee’s position

  • Commitment to an incident-free work environment

  • Responsibility for personal safety, the safety of fellow employees, others on location and the environment

A Benefits Package that Prioritizes Health and Wellness

  • Medical, dental and vision insurance for all full-time employees, and all part-time employees working more than 20 hours per week, and their dependents

  • An Educational Assistance Plan, which offers reimbursement of tuition fees for any employee pursuing an undergraduate degree and, in some cases, post-graduate degrees

A Work Environment Built on Shared Values

How we conduct business at H&P is guided, first and foremost, by our values:
  • Actively C.A.R.E.—a commitment to Controlling and Removing Exposures

  • Service Attitude

  • Innovative Spirit

  • Teamwork

  • Do the Right Thing

Every day, we strive to create and maintain a global work environment that enables our employees and our organization to thrive. Our values are reflected in our Code of Business Conduct and Ethics, which emphasizes (among other things) our commitment to equal opportunity employment and a workplace free of discriminatory practices. Each H&P employee understands the importance of these shared values, and as a whole, we are dedicated to upholding them as we go about our daily activities.

Investing in Future Generations: The Phyllis Dotson Scholarship Program

Helmerich & Payne (H&P) recognizes the value of investing in our future. The Phyllis Dotson Scholarship Program offers children of H&P employees an opportunity to continue to learn and grow through higher education. Phyllis Dotson and her husband George Dotson—a long-standing (and now retired) employee at H&P—both have a passion for educating young adults, and H&P strives to continue that legacy. The Phyllis-Dotson Scholarship Program is open to the children of all H&P employees, both domestic and international, and all scholarships are granted without regard to race, color, creed, religion, sexual orientation, age, gender, disability, or national origin. Since 1999, scholarships have been provided to the children of more than 100 H&P employees.
