OKLAHOMA CITY—A well-known energy giant based in Oklahoma City is getting attention for being a great place to work.

Devon Energy announced that it has been named to Fortune magazine’s list of “100 Best Companies to Work For.”

This is the company’s sixth straight year to be on the magazine’s list.

“It is our fine employees, the people who create our corporate culture, who make Devon a great place to work,” said John Richels, Devon’s president and CEO. “We are pleased and proud Devon Energy has made the Fortune list again this year. We see this as further affirmation of our values. Working as a team, doing the right thing, being a good neighbor; these are shared commitments that contribute to a tremendously rewarding workplace.”

Devon is ranked No. 27, which is actually a jump from last year’s position.

Its rank was based in part on a random, anonymous survey of employees conducted by the Great Place to Work Institute.

Devon is hosting a Petro-Professional Career Fair on Jan. 22 from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. for those who are looking for a career at the company.
