Advancing pay equity and workforce composition

To build the workforce we need, we must offer equitable pay and opportunities across the company. We’re measuring our performance and always looking for ways to further align our practices with our aspirations.


Peer employee pay equity

The salaries of female and minority employees are, on average, positioned equivalently (+/-2% to accommodate workforce changes throughout the year) within the applicable job pay range as males and non-minorities.


Employee base pay compensation

100% of employees make more than $19/hour and receive an annual performance bonus and long-term incentives.


Female and minority leadership representation

While female leadership representation remained steady over the last two years, minorities in corporate leadership increased from 10% to 11% and minorities in field leadership increased from 16% to 19%.


Hiring minority talent

Over the last two years, Devon has hired minority employees at a rate of 11% compared to a 7% rate for non-minority employees.
