Our People Make The Difference

“In horseracing, you’re often betting on the jockey, not the horse. At Hornbeck Offshore, our sound strategy and technologically advanced vessels may be the most visible marks of a champion, but it’s our people, and their ability to successfully steer us through a challenging course, that separates us from the field.”

Hornbeck Offshore is an innovator in the expanding deepwater and ultra-deepwater oilfield marine service industry. Through a series of newbuild programs and vessel acquisitions, Hornbeck Offshore has assembled a multi-class fleet of increasingly larger, more versatile new generation OSVs capable of meeting the widest array of customer needs. However, even the best vessels in the world can't deliver success on their own- it takes a team of talented, customer-focused people to achieve that goal. 

At Hornbeck Offshore, we never forget that we operate in a service industry, which is why we are so focused on meeting the needs of our customers. Everything we do, from developing leading-edge technologies for our fleet to hiring the best people in the business, is driven by our goal of being the Company of Choice® in our industry. In doing so, we apply the lessons we have learned in the past to the challenges of the future. We will continue to execute the hiring and promotion strategies that propelled us to success throughout our history, thereby ensuring that our customers, employees and investors remain in the winner's circle. To achieve this, emphasis is placed on hiring and retaining people who prefer to work in an environment driven by our core values, and not the "bottom-line."
