Devon's mission and values create a strong foundation for the company. They represent the core beliefs upon which the company was built and are essential to its continuing success.
Devon is a results-oriented oil and gas company that builds value for shareholders through our employees by creating a culture of health, safety and environmental stewardship in an atmosphere of optimism, teamwork, creativity and resourcefulness and by dealing with everyone in an open and ethical manner.
Hire the best people. Our belief that our people are our most important asset provides the foundation for all of our values and convictions. Our extensive portfolio of corporate resources is, however, not enough to make us "the best." To be the best, we need the best people – people who are always striving to obtain more and to maximize value for our company.
Always do the right thing. The most important of our values, integrity, defines the core of every relationship we have. Whether inside the company or outside the company, integrity establishes the trust that is critical to the relationships that make our values work. Embracing honesty and integrity as our most important value means we stick by our word and we will always do the right thing, even when no one is looking.
Deliver results. As stewards of a public company, it is our job to constantly strive to increase shareholder value. That is why we have to be results-driven with a clear focus on achievement. By conducting our business with a sense of urgency, we will remain more agile than companies a fraction of our size with the result that "big" will never mean slow.
Be a team player. A central value of our company is the belief that teamwork and collaboration will create a better organization, provide more fulfillment for employees, significantly reduce bureaucracy and dramatically improve results. Teamwork and cooperation increases nimbleness, enhances effectiveness and helps to create an atmosphere of trust and goodwill that directly results in better performance.
Be a good neighbor. With the continued expansion of our business, the spectrum of communities that are touched by our operations continually broadens. That is why we have a fundamental respect for the environment and the people and communities in which we operate.
