During his career, Rhodes says BHGE has both given him opportunities to travel and opportunities to stay put, such as the long period of time he and his wife spent in Dubai. “I spent thirteen years in Dubai when, really, if I’d been more willing to move sooner, I could probably have progressed better, but it was my choice. My wife and I enjoyed Dubai and we were allowed the opportunity to stay.” He says choosing to reside in one location may run the risk of missing out on certain opportunities, but the ability to stay put is more important than upward mobility to some. “At the end of the day, if you’re good at your job and you deliver value, the opportunity to ‘stay put’ is always there.” BHGE regularly surveys to ensure its employees are being paid competitively and have other common attractive employee benefits. “But it isn’t always just about money. Money is important, but we want people to want to come to work, and we try to create that kind of environment.” BHGE, in turn, is looking to attract intelligent employees who exhibit the company’s culture and values. Qualities such as integrity, the ability to work in a team, care for the environment, and a desire to provide customers with quality products and services are all important qualities for prospective employees to possess. “We want people who are willing to think out of the box, people who don’t just come to work, punch a card, and go home at night,” Rhodes says. Investment in the company and its clients is a key value. These employee qualities echo the company’s culture pillars:  We drive customers in everything we do.  We connect and invest in each other.  We lead in all ways.  We are inventors.  We collaborate without boundaries. These pillars also inform BHGE’s high safety standards. “In Alaska we are very proud of our safety culture,” Rhodes says, adding that the company has been recognized by ConocoPhillips in Alaska for its safety record and culture, winning the Safety Excellence Award for 2017. A significant part of BHGE’s safety policy is making every day a “Perfect HSE Day,” which Rhodes explains is a day in which there is no significant injury to any employee or to the environment. As of February 28, in Alaska BHGE Oilfield Services achieved a record of a little more than two years without incident—789 Perfect HSE Days. “We want every employee to get up in the morning, go to work, do their job, and go home at night safely: do no damage to the environment, no damage to themselves, and no damage to a fellow employee. That’s it, simple. That’s what we’re aiming for. We count them day by day so everybody stays focused on it every day,” Rhodes says.
