Core Values: The Devon Way
Trust is a key ingredient in Devon’s success. It is vital that our stakeholders trust us to deliver results the right way. The Devon Way.
The Devon Way promotes a culture of integrity and accountability. A large medallion with the word “Integrity” is inset in the center of the rotunda of our headquarters. It’s not only a visible reminder of our culture for employees but also a tool to discuss our culture and attributes with candidates for job openings with Devon. Integrity enables us to work better and more efficiently. It strengthens our relationships and establishes Devon as the partner of choice in our industry. We seek to increase shareholder value while operating in an environmentally and socially responsible manner. We are driven to perform with a clear focus, a sense of urgency and a commitment to continuous improvement. By creating a feeling of personal ownership and a culture of hard work, innovation and productivity, Devon encourages an environment that brings out the best in each of us.
An atmosphere of teamwork, inclusion and trust encourages our employees to participate in the decision-making process. It promotes accountability and gives everyone an opportunity to develop as a leader. A workforce that is truly engaged will derive greater satisfaction from our success and from our improved work performance. Devon’s strength springs from employees who are committed to increasing shareholder value and who share in the satisfaction of our long-term success. Our corporate culture is one of fundamental respect for the environment and our neighbors. This respect makes Devon a good community partner and helps improve the quality of life where we live and work. By being a good neighbor, Devon enhances our ability to meet our corporate goals.
Because our people are the company’s most important resource, we develop employees’ knowledge and creativity, and we cultivate an atmosphere where everyone can share an idea and know that it will be heard.
We foster teamwork and a culture of trust and goodwill, because a focused, fulfilled and engaged workforce brings more job satisfaction and ultimately yields a more successful company.
In a competitive environment, this mantra too often gets pushed aside. At Devon, we refuse to succumb to ethical lapses. We embrace honesty and uncompromised integrity as our foremost core value.
We share a fundamental respect for the environment and constantly strive to improve the overall quality of life in the communities where we operate. We do this at both the corporate and individual levels.
In our commitment to increase shareholder value, we instill a desire for continuous improvement, both as individuals and as a company. We do this through hard work and individual ownership of Devon’s goals and objectives.
