bp and our people

bp’s success depends on having a talented and diverse workforce that represents the communities we serve. We are proud to have the brightest minds in our industry with a modern working environment and an inclusive, dynamic culture. Together we are working to deliver our purpose and power the energy transition

70,100 people working for bp in 2019?

bp and the energy industry as a whole are undergoing a period of fundamental change – driven by the demands of the energy transition. We need to become a different kind of energy company for a very different future. This means building a modern, flexible working environment and an inclusive culture in which people feel valued and able to contribute their best knowing that bp protects their rights, works to keep them safe and well, invests in their development and rewards them fairly and competitively.


We’re investing time and energy to make sure our practices and systems help us become an employer of choice wherever we work.



Being a responsible employer

We employ more than 70,000 people. They work in hundreds of locations worldwide. We want our employees to work in safe, healthy, secure and good conditions. Respect for their human rights is integral to our recruitment, management and diversity and inclusion processes.


Our employees are bound by our code of conduct, which requires them to report any suspected human rights abuses or incidents of wrongdoing in bp or in our business partners’ operations, including bribery and corruption. They can report these through their line management, our human resources team, or by using our independent and confidential ‘OpenTalk’ service.
