Phillips 66 is committed to providing energy and improving lives, and proud to be the lead corporate sponsor of the American Jobs for America’s Heroes (AJAH) campaign. Support for the military is part of the Phillips 66 culture, and the values the military instills in its personnel complement the Company’s values: safety, honor and commitment.
Phillips 66 appreciates the sacrifices the men and women in the armed services have made for their country and recognizes the need to thank and support them. The military offers a great talent pool with jobs and skills sets that are aligned with Phillips 66’s hiring needs. In 2013, 20 to 23 percent of the hourly workforce hired in its Refining business were veterans.
The Company’s commitment runs deep, from direct hiring, to program sponsorships, Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR), as well as a robust Veteran and Military Employee Resource Group, an employee volunteer network that helps veteran employees adjust to the private sector and participates in community outreach activities. These initiatives have proven invaluable in helping Phillips 66 recruit and retain veteran employees.
