“When Hilcorp Wins, We All Win!” is more than a catchy slogan. Five years ago, CEO Jeff Hildebrand proclaimed that if the oil and gas producer reached several daunting goals (doubled its equity value, net production, and reserves), he was going to give everyone $100,000. Sure enough, the goals were met, and the president hand-delivered personalized suitcases with their checks for $100,000 (prorated for those hired more recently). This was not the first time for such largess. In 2011 Hilcorp employees received a pro-rated $50,000 voucher to buy their “dream car” after the company met its previous five-year goals.
