Devon Returns to the FORTUNE List of Top Workplaces
Devon Energy has been named again to the FORTUNE Magazine annual list of the “100 Best Companies to Work For®.”
“Being named to this FORTUNE list has always been a source of immense pride for us,” said Dave Hager, president and CEO. “And yet, this year it’s especially gratifying in light of our recent steps to transform the company.”
“Innovation is occurring within Devon at an unprecedented pace. This announcement by FORTUNE confirms that as we’ve embraced change, our core values remain the cornerstone that make Devon a great place to work,” Hager said.
Devon is ranked 92nd on this year’s list and is only one of two oil and natural gas producers to be ranked.
Devon’s placement on the FORTUNE list was based largely on an anonymous survey of all U.S. employees conducted by the Great Place to Work Institute. Employees overwhelmingly responded that Devon offers a welcoming environment, meaningful work, a commitment to work-life balance and leaders who are approachable, honest and ethical. Notably, 94 percent said they are proud to tell others they work at Devon.
The FORTUNE list is the leading measure of workplace culture in the United States. Companies on the list generally attract a higher number of qualified job applicants and experience lower turnover rates, according to the Great Place to Work Institute. Devon has about 2,600 employees in the U.S. and 900 in Canada.
