OKLAHOMA CITY – Devon Energy announced today it has again been named to Fortune magazine’s list of the 100 Best Companies to Work For.
This marks Devon’s seventh straight year to be included on Fortune’s prestigious list.
“We have always believed the strength of our company originates with the people who work here,” said John Richels, Devon’s president and CEO. “Our presence on the Fortune list continues to be a great honor in which we all take an enormous amount of pride. But more importantly, it affirms the quality of our corporate culture, the values of our organization and the foundation of our business.”
“We believe Devon has been a great company to work for many years,” Richels said. “It is gratifying to be recognized by Fortune for seven years in a row.”
Devon’s rank on the Fortune list was based in part on a random, anonymous survey of employees conducted by the Great Place to Work Institute.
The survey found that employees find Devon to be a safe and healthy place to work with strong leadership and trust among employees, a sharp focus on performance, a good work/life balance and strong commitment to community involvement.
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, experience lower turnover rates and consistently outperform major stock indices, according to the Great Place to Work Institute.
