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.


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 every employee realize his or her full potential.

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


As a socially responsible company, CRC is committed to partnering with local communities. 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. We sponsor a range of scholarships, internships and training and educational programs for local residents and students to identify opportunities to work in our vibrant industry.


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 safety performance equivalent to non-industrial sectors like finance and insurance. In recognition of the exemplary safety performance of our workforce, CRC received 14 National Safety Achievement Awards at the National Safety Council’s 2018 annual meeting. CRC's 2018 Injury and Illness Incidence Rate (IIR) – the number of recordable injuries and illnesses of employees and contractors per 100 workers – was 0.50. For comparison, this is 50 percent better than the U.S. oil and natural gas extraction sector average 2017 IIR of 1.0, and over 82 percent better than the all-U.S. industry 2017 average of 2.8 reported by the Bureau of Labor Statistics of the U.S. Department of Labor.
