Our Culture — Enterprise has a long history and has never strayed far from the work environment and culture established by our founder, Dan Duncan. His legacy lives on and our goal is to recruit and develop personnel who share the vision and values of the company, as articulated in the Enterprise Model.
The Enterprise Model
Hiring the Best
We seek to hire individuals whose qualifications best fit the job, who can contribute to the success of our business and who will thrive in our environment. In doing this, we value diverse backgrounds, experiences, perspectives, and expertise. This helps us to challenge the status quo and continuously improve our business processes and outcomes, resulting in a strategic advantage. As of February 1, 2018, our affiliates employed approximately 7,000 full-time employees who perform services for Enterprise and its subsidiaries.

- Corporate Training – Supervisory, Communication skills, Business Writing, Achieving results (working with teams) and Midstream 101 (introduction to our industry)
- Approximately 375 employees attend corporate training classes each year; Enterprise invests roughly $200,000 a year with our training vendors to support this effort.
- Technical Training - in 2017, Enterprise provided over 280,000 hours of safety, technical and compliance training via 594 distinct types of courses to over 3,600 operations and maintenance employees.

Employee Education Assistance Program
Enterprise Relief Fund
Enterprise’s dedication to providing our people with the tools for success and an opportunity to apply their skills led to the promotion of more than 1,000 employees since 2015.
Operation IMPACT (Injured Military Pursuing Career Transition) - is an award-winning diversity program managed within Northrop Grumman and established after the events of September 11, 2001 for the purpose of assisting severely wounded service members as they transition from the military to a career in the private sector. Through Operation Impact’s “Network of Champions,” Enterprise provides volunteer support for workshops that teach important skills, including resume writing, job interviewing, transition training and LinkedIn profile development.
Lone Star Veterans Association - is the largest post-9/11 veteran membership group in the state of Texas. We provide volunteer support for workshops offering resume writing and career transition counseling in addition to a variety of other services designed to assist servicemen and women. In 2017, Enterprise sponsored the annual LSVA picnic and barbecue fundraiser.
Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve - In 2017 Enterprise was awarded the Extraordinary Employer Support Award by the Texas Committee for Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR). ESGR’s Extraordinary Employer Support Award was created to recognize sustained employer support of National Guard and Reserve service. Only prior recipients of the Secretary of Defense Employer Support Freedom Award or the Pro Patria Award, who have demonstrated sustained support for three years after receiving one of those awards, are eligible for consideration at the committee level. ESGR, a Department of Defense program, was established in 1972 to promote cooperation and understanding between Reserve Component Service members and their civilian employers and to assist in the resolution of conflicts arising from an employee's military commitment. Volunteers, representing small business and industry, government, education, and prior military service, bring experience to assist in serving employers, service members, and their families.
