Fluor Hires For Gulf Coast Relief

February 15

Fluor Corporation is one of the world's largest publicly owned engineering, procurement, construction and maintenance services organizations. Because of its involvement in the oil and gas industries, the company has a significant presence in Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama - and it is now growing even larger.

"Our heartfelt grief, as well as our commitment to help to rebuild the Gulf area, extends throughout the Fluor Corporation," said Alan L. Boeckmann, Fluor's chairman of the board and chief executive officer. "Through teamwork and ingenuity, America will turn this tragedy into a new beginning for the entire region."

When Katrina roared into the Gulf, Fluor rolled into action. After initial reports of the extent of the devastation, Fluor immediately contacted TMP Advertising and Communications to see how we could help them hire between four and six thousand addition employees to address the repair and rebuilding of destroyed systems and infrastructures. The relief effort demands the hiring of additional talent in virtually every civil craft, from electrician to pipe fitter. In fact, new hiring may eventually top 10,000.

TMP met with Fluor and immediately took action. Within 24 hours, we recommended a strategy and media plan that included quick-to-market solutions, from an extensive email campaign to listings on, the leading online careers and recruitment resource. Once the plan was approved, TMP rocked into action with new creative for online and print, and began placing media. The end result: Fluor is now hiring aggressively and quickly, coming to the aid of the people and businesses of the Gulf region. But there is still a long way to go.

Fluor serves clients in a wide variety of industries worldwide, including oil and gas, chemicals and petrochemicals, commercial and institutional, government services, life sciences, manufacturing, microelectronics, mining, power, telecommunications and transportation. Although its presence is worldwide, the company is truly acting regionally, locally and compassionately to address the needs of the entire Gulf region.

Thank you, Fluor.
