RLG has been supporting Alaska performance improvement for over 15 years. While our experience has been largely within the oil and gas sector, our tools and methodologies will support any industry’s business needs. Today we support business objectives for the three largest oil and gas operators in the state and over the years we have supported the workforce in the top 25 suppliers here in Alaska. Our teams support their drilling, well intervention, operations and maintenance, and capital projects groups.

Geographically, we have worked in every field of the North Slope and done work in Kenai, Beluga, and offshore in the Cook Inlet. Additionally, we have several of our performance coaches supporting engineering, exploration and project teams based in Anchorage.

We know how important workforce relationships are here in Alaska. Whenever possible, we hire locally, relocate RLG families to Alaska and maintain a consistent group of rotators who travel from all over the L48 to don their Arctic gear and head north on shared services.


We’ve delivered a myriad of business results through front line engagement:

  • On-time project delivery
  • Short-season project delivery
  • Summer maintenance program success
  • Personal safety culture results
  • Process safety systems and culture improvement
  • Increased overall workforce efficiency

And the list goes on.

RLG built its reputation in Alaska by helping operators tackle personal safety performance through a non-traditional business approach. Our tools, developed originally for business performance, were modified and applied exceptionally well to meet the cultural challenges presented within personal safety performance. Applying business tools and thinking through our FAIR (Focus, Accountability, Involvement, Response) and SAFER models, we’ve been able to truly empower front line leaders to own and deliver personal safety results. RLG Alaska safety stories have delivered world-class changes in personal safety performance. In fact, it was RLG who developed the core modules and delivery for the popular and prolific Incident-Free Culture workshops which over 4,000 of the North Slope workforce have seen.

Our recent work has expanded into capital projects, cost mitigation and drilling performance.

Referring to North Slope seasonal work, a senior client said the following:

“On every project we use RLG, we tend to bat a thousand. When we try to do these on our own is where we have the train wrecks.”  Referring to a step change (65% reduction in TRIR)

“I’m confident that we would have achieved these world-class results someday, but we would not have gotten here nearly as soon without RLG.”

General Manager, North Slope Operations

“I’ve worked with a lot of companies that do similar things, but you guys pull it off every time because of the incredible people you have. I’ve never seen a workforce embrace consultants like this before.”
