Our Core Values

Character. Responsibility. Commitment.

California Resources Corporation (CRC) takes pride in being a responsible employer, dedicated to treating every employee with respect and dignity and providing a safe, healthy, and high-quality work environment. Every aspect of our business is guided by CRC’s ethical, environmental and safety commitments.

Our Commitment to our Workforce

The primary factor in our success is CRC’s multicultural workforce. We recognize that a motivated, well-trained, and diverse workforce is a strong competitive advantage, and we expect our employees to communicate and work effectively with people from many different backgrounds and cultures.

CRC is an Equal Opportunity Employer. We provide equal opportunity in every aspect of employment without regard to race, religion, color, national origin, ancestry, physical disability, mental disability, legally protected medical condition, marital status, sex, gender identity, age over 40, veteran status, sexual orientation, or any other basis protected by federal, state or local law. CRC's Equal Opportunity statement is reissued annually to reaffirm our commitment. Our recruiting, training and career development programs are designed to help all employees realize their full potential.

CRC has a diverse workforce of exceptional talent. This diversity enriches our employees' experience on the job and contributes to an effective business model that helps local communities to thrive.

Our Commitment to our Local Communities

CRC's core values of Character, Responsibility and Commitment direct how we conduct our business, contribute to our communities, support local economies, protect the environment, and interact daily with our stakeholders. Our work practices in every location are designed to increase the prosperity and quality of life for local residents. We seek to hire from the communities where we operate, and actively encourage our suppliers and vendors to do so.

Our Commitment to Safety

At CRC, we have an unwavering commitment to provide a safe and healthy work environment for all employees and contractors.

We maintain stringent health, safety and environmental policies at every work site. All CRC employees and contractors are required to follow these policies and take the necessary precautions to protect themselves and their co-workers, including the right, without repercussions, to stop any job or task that they perceive may be unsafe. We also expect and require employees, contractors and visitors to immediately report accidents as well as unsafe practices and conditions.

CRC consistently ranks among the safest companies in the United States with a better safety performance than many non-industrial sectors. In recognition of the exemplary safety performance of our workforce, CRC and our regional operations received 24 National Safety Achievement Awards in 2022 with respect to our 2021 performance. In addition, CRC's 2022 Injury and Illness Incidence Rate (IIR) – the number of recordable injuries and illnesses of employees and contractors per 100 workers – was 0.62. For comparison, this rate surpasses the rest of the oil and natural gas industry as well as most other sectors including finance, insurance and real estate – as reported by the Bureau of Labor Statistics of the U.S. Department of Labor.
