"Hess is a company that genuinely cares about its employees"
Hess has proven to be a true friend to many of the communities where it operates in times of need. In this video, Ron Ness, president of the North Dakota Petroleum Council, and Chuck VanAllen, vice president Global Unconventionals at Hess, discuss how Hess honored its commitment to North Dakota, especially in the aftermath of devastating floods in Minot in June 2011. It features Hess Chairman and CEO John Hess, who stressed that Hess would act "as a force for good" during a time of need. In addition to donating $1 million to flood relief in North Dakota, Hess suspended operations for two weeks so employees could help with rescue and clean-up efforts. "I work for a company that genuinely cares about its employees and the community where it does business," said Hess Human Resources associate Kimberly Carlson.
