Our continued success is enabled by our ability to create a work environment that attracts, retains and motivates the most talented individuals. That environment includes fair treatment, competitive compensation and benefits, and the opportunity to learn and grow on the job.
Policies and Practices
At Tesoro, we embrace and value diverse views, backgrounds and beliefs. We believe the diversity of our employees provides our business with a unique set of perspectives. Tesoro respects the rights of others and offers equal employment opportunities to everyone who meets our qualifications.
We are committed to fair practices in all aspects of employment, including recruiting, hiring, performance evaluation, training, discipline, work assignment, compensation, promotion and termination. We follow federal and state labor and employment laws, and do not tolerate unlawful discrimination of any kind.
We believe everyone is personally responsible and accountable for maintaining a work environment free from discrimination and harassment. No employee will be subject to retaliation for reporting an incident they believe, in good faith, violates our policies.
Our fundamental business principles promote an inclusive, open and entrepreneurial workplace. Employees have the opportunity and responsibility to share their experiences, ideas and viewpoints to create new business successes and to help Tesoro meet its commitments to our customers, communities and shareholders.
Employee Compensation and Benefits Programs
Tesoro offers a competitive and comprehensive range of benefits designed to attract, retain and motivate employees.
Each year, eligible employees have the opportunity to choose from medical, dental and vision coverage. Tesoro’s health benefits offer coverage to full-time employees, their eligible dependent children and spouse or domestic partner.
Tesoro recognizes the value of good health, and supports a healthy work-life balance that is conducive to good health. An emphasis on prevention helps employees stay healthy, while helping to control medical costs. With Tesoro’s medical options, employees can take advantage of routine physical examinations and childhood immunizations.
Our benefit programs foster a shared responsibility between Tesoro and its employees. Tesoro has structured a medical cost-sharing approach in which the Company assumes the majority of the cost. This structure encourages employees to take an active role in managing their benefits, costs and health.
Tesoro is fully committed to providing compensation programs and pay levels which are market competitive. In addition, we provide our employees with the opportunity to save for retirement and build their financial future. Eligible employees can build retirement savings through a Thrift 401(k) Plan, as well as a Tesoro-funded pension plan. The 401(k) plan allows employees to contribute a percentage of their eligible pay, which is matched up to 6 percent.
Additional benefit programs such as Adoption and Educational Assistance, as well as fitness center and Weight Watchers® reimbursements, are available to eligible employees. We offer discount-purchase programs, flexible spending accounts for medical and dependent care expenses, and a company matching-gift program to accredited educational institutions.

Employee Training and Development
Tesoro provides employees with opportunities for skill development at each stage of their careers. This includes both challenging work assignments and access to a broad training and development program. The development of our employees’ knowledge and skill sets is critical to ensuring they perform effectively and comply with relevant laws, regulations and guidelines.
Employee on-boarding sessions are designed to efficiently integrate new employees into Tesoro. Technical training is provided to our employees using both internal and external resources. Local subject matter experts from each area of the business work closely with human resources to develop and implement appropriate training programs.
An Educational Assistance Reimbursement program is also available to eligible employees to promote secondary learning and excellence within their field.
