Talent attraction, engagement and retention
Through our recruitment efforts, we seek top diverse talent who will continue to drive our strong performance. We have a competitive offering that provides us with a solid pipeline of candidates. Internally and externally, we post openings to attract individuals with a range of backgrounds, skills and experience, offering employee bonuses for referring highly qualified candidates. In addition, we actively recruit at colleges and conduct information sessions at select universities including Historically Black Colleges and Universities and Hispanic-Serving Institutions.
To encourage emerging talent to consider a career at Cheniere, we offer paid internships as well as entry-level rotational positions. We pair each intern with a mentor, offering both structured learning and topical business experience. Additionally, we partner with Genesys Works, a local non-profit organization, to provide professional internships to high school students from underserved communities.
In 2018, we launched a local apprenticeship program to develop the next generation of operations and maintenance professionals. In partnership with local community colleges in Louisiana and Texas, the program awards grants to help offset the cost of tuition for students.
Lifestyle and benefits
We value work-life balance and encourage a healthy lifestyle. To support that, we provide a highly competitive compensation and benefits package. Our wellness program incentivizes employees to maintain an active lifestyle and set personal wellness goals. Incentives include online education related to health and nutrition as well as subsidies for fitness devices and gym memberships through the LiveWell365 platform.
Strong workforce communication lies at the core of everything we do. Through HENRY, our internal communications online platform, as well as town halls, all-hands meetings and other information sessions, we share company updates, videos, internal and external news, and other information with our teams.
We conduct anonymous engagement surveys to better understand our employees’ connection with Cheniere, their work, and to identify opportunities for improvement. We promote an environment of open and honest communication and offer employees the means to voice concerns and offer suggestions to management.
We value all feedback and aim to quickly address any concerns. We conduct anonymous engagement surveys to better understand our employees’ connection with Cheniere and their work, and to identify opportunities for improvement. Designated Cultural Champions teams gather, log and respond to suggestion boxes located at each site. In 2016, we also launched Cheniere Listens, a program for employees to submit questions or concerns online.
