Workforce Preparedness A key element to Sunoco’s success now and in the future is qualified, skilled, and committed employees. Several important programs have been instituted to attract qualified job applicants and help them to be successful in their career with the company. The Employee Performance Management Program forms the basis for all of the company’s employee development activities by ensuring that each employee and his/her manager has a clear understanding of what is expected. The program also ensures the employee receives regular performance feedback. In addition, the OEMS process requires that training be provided as necessary to ensure the success of HES and operations integrity initiatives.
