Hess Values

Our Values Guide Our Business

Our Corporate Values reinforce our commitment to traditional Hess strengths and underscore the qualities that define us as a leading global independent energy company. At Hess, six core values guide our actions as individuals at work and as a corporation: Integrity, People, Performance, Value Creation, Social Responsibility and Independent Spirit. They are the basic building blocks of our organization’s culture and represent our company’s collective conscience. While our strategy changes over time based on business conditions, our values are enduring.

Integrity: Always Do The Right Thing

Our handshake is our bond. We stand behind our promises. We treat our employees, customers and partners with fairness, honesty and respect, just as we would want them to treat us. At Hess, our goal is to build long-term relationships and trusted partnerships.
