Human resources

At BP, human resources professionals act as business partners. Some deliver strategic guidance. Others support the day-to-day needs of managers and employees. And when a business has operations in six continents, that guidance and support has to be powerful enough to deliver commercial goals
Our human resources teams put together the plans that will recruit, retain and reward people who can keep us ahead in the global energy challenge. They act as business partners and support the needs of our employees and managers.
 

A company as pioneering as ours doesn’t wait to be discovered by people who have the right talents and skills. Human resources professionals have to put together the plans that will recruit, retain and reward people who can keep us ahead in the global energy challenge. They also develop world-class training programmes for over 80,000 employees, build our capabilities and anticipate the demand for new skills. And when it comes to human resources policies and procedures, they help create a culture of mutual respect. In short, human resources drives our performance – on a global scale.

 

Efficiency holds the key to what human resources can achieve and we invest in systems, data and core processes to manage governance, policy and compliance. That way human resources can respond quickly and effectively to the fast-changing energy industry. Human resources plans and policies help equip our people for their roles – whether that’s drilling deeper wells, delivering clear financial reporting or promoting safety.
