BASF Corporation - Veteran Spotlight
"My active duty and National Guard experience provided me with the framework to be successful in BASF. At the same time, BASF provides the culture for me to excel, and the tools for me to grow as a leader. For example, my military background trained me on how to motivate, cooperate, and count on your teammates in order to succeed. At BASF, collaboration, teamwork and responsibility are attributes we strive to exhibit every day. From internally focused projects, to those that require collaboration with customers and vendors, the chance to be part of a successful team that is striving to win has been part of my experience at BASF for the past eight years." - Jon Mathews, Human Resources Director, Southfield, Michigan
"When I hire new employees for Supply Chain, I am looking for candidates with the right mindset and behaviors over Supply Chain knowledge. I can teach Supply Chain practices to a new employee, but I can't always teach someone to have the right mindset and behaviors. In my opinion, most military veterans are set to succeed at BASF." - Don Cole, Manager, Group Logistics, Southfield, Michigan
"No other company that I've worked with mirrors the life and culture of the military as closely as BASF does. We work in an important industry; have a high level of commitment to working safely; require strict adherence to following procedures; and foster a community of respect and integrity.
What's more, the Company recognizes the sacrifices that men and women of the armed services make while serving their country. In appreciation of those sacrifices, and with the strong desire to support our returning men and women, we are proud to leverage the training, skills, and character we find in our military veterans." - Allen June, HR Business Partner, Freeport, Texas
"BASF is a great place for veterans to work because it provides an environment that is welcoming and respectful of veterans' experiences. From the day that I joined, I was immediately welcomed in as part of the team. My manager and team members value my opinion and are always interested in my input. My assignments and roles not only allow me to showcase the talents I refined while in the military, they also challenge me and provide plenty of opportunity for growth." - Keith Williams, Staff Engineer, Houston, Texas
