By modeling our Principles, of Integrity, Respect, Citizenship, and Spirit, we positively impact our communities in tangible ways. Built upon our Principles, our Employee Value Proposition empowers our people to be the best they can be through meaningful work that enhances the business and customer experience.

Employee Value Proposition

Our Promise and Commitment to our Employees

Our Employee Value Proposition (EVP) is an articulation of who we are, built upon our Principles and Competencies, that describes how we see, hear, and feel the Murphy USA experience. This encompasses everything from our culture and people, community efforts, and purpose-driven work; to our growth and development opportunities and Total Rewards programs. It lives in the experiences individuals have before they join, while they are with us, and after they leave. Our EVP empowers our people to be the best they can be through meaningful work that enhances the business and customer experience. And it supports our employees as they do their part to drive our ESG strategy forward and sustain our most responsible retailer goal through their daily actions.

Environmental, Social and Governance

Putting Our Beliefs Into Action

Environmental, Social and Corporate Governance (ESG) initiatives can sometimes become a check-the-box exercise for organizations. We are proud to say that Murphy USA is NOT one of those organizations. We firmly believe in the tenets of ESG and we put our beliefs into action every day.

Murphy USA serves our customers by providing fuel and convenience items, including food, beverage and tobacco at everyday low prices. In order to carry out this role in the most sustainable manner possible, we focus on our ESG Mission Statement and our five ESG Pillars, which rest on specific, measurable objectives. We make business decisions every day with these objectives in mind.

ESG Mission Statement

Guided by our Principles of Integrity, Respect, Citizenship, and Spirit:

  • We are committed to the greater good for our environment, communities, employees, company, customers, suppliers, and other stakeholders.
  • We embrace diversity as an essential component of the way we do business.
  • We are ethical and transparent corporate citizens.
