Our People

Our success depends on our people. Our employees’ focus on accountability and performance enables us to safely find and deliver energy to the world. Effectively engaging, developing, retaining and rewarding our employees is a priority for us.

We believe that an engaged workforce is a powerful determinant of business success and in 2019 we launched a multi-year effort to solicit feedback from our employees via an employee survey, “Perspectives.” Payroll Country DistributionIn the survey, we had 86% employee participation and achieved a satisfaction score 5 points higher than general industry companies and 11 points higher than our energy peers. Based on survey results, leaders across the company developed action plans for their areas of accountability to address employee feedback. We track progress on the action plans and intend to resurvey our employees in 2020.

At year-end 2019, we had approximately 10,400 employees in 17 countries. This reflects a 4% decrease from 2018, driven primarily by asset dispositions.
