After our merger, Devon took time to reflect on how best to build a workforce to lead our company for decades to come. We listened to employees’ feedback on what they want and need from Devon and their careers, and to our human resources staff’s recommendations on what we need to do differently.

We value our people and will invest in their success. To move Devon forward, we are focusing on providing professionally rewarding and long-term careers, meaningful compensation and benefits, and a sense of belonging and inclusion. We’re committed to balancing what employees need as individuals with Devon’s best interests as a company.


One of our values is to keep learning and challenging ourselves and each other to be the best and deliver results. In recent years, our employee development was focused on coaching, mentoring and ongoing conversations to help employees focus on what they need to do to make an impact every day.



Devon’s learning and development approach allows employees to develop a variety of skills through different ways of learning


  • Leadership training to build and reinforce fundamental leadership skills at the front line and mid-level, and inclusive leadership awareness and skills.
  • Professional training to build business and financial acumen, technology skills and obtain professional certifications.
  • 执行教练具有具体的发展目标,以改善个人和组织绩效。
  • 员工和360度反馈,以使领导者对反馈进行解释和采取行动。

一个关键成分nt of the ecosystem is the Learner’s Network, which supports employees’ two most preferred ways to learn: in-person, instructor-led delivery and one-on-one conversations with peers. Learning and development specialists and technical subject matter experts in the network assess and meet employees’ ongoing variety of learning needs related to technology, engineering, business analysis, environmental, health and safety (EHS) and other skills.

Meaningful compensation, benefits and work practices

We value employees who are open and honest, take ownership and contribute to our company objectives. To cultivate a workforce with these qualities, we start with offering equal opportunity in all aspects of employment and providing competitive compensation and benefits.

Devon offers equitable pay. Salaries of female and minority employees are, on average, positioned equivalently (+/-2% relative to the applicable pay grade) to those of male and non-minority peers. All Devon employees make more than $19 an hour. We encourage a sharp focus on results by giving every employee an equity stake in our business through annual stock awards and the opportunity to receive an annual cash bonus based on meeting corporate goals. We measure our performance, benchmark against our industry and look for ways to further align our compensation practices with our aspirations.

Devon takes a values-driven approach to meeting both the company’s business objectives and employees’ personal and family needs. Our comprehensive benefits include wellness programs and an Employee Assistance Program (EAP) that provides confidential support on a wide variety of issues to employees and their family members. We offer flexible work schedules, an alternate work schedule (9/80), part-time work, telecommuting and parental paid leave. In 2022, we enhanced our practices by updating our paid time off policy to help ensure our employees take the time to care for themselves and others in their lives. Our Paid Family & Medical Leave (PFML) Policy provides up to 26 weeks of paid medical leave for an employee’s own medically certified health condition and eight weeks of paid maternity leave for the birth of a child. In addition, under PFML, employees are eligible for up to a maximum of 160 hours of paid leave each calendar year for parental leave (including adoption and long-term foster care placement), leave for care of family, bereavement leave and compassion leave. We’ll continue to adjust our practices and policies as needed to care for employee needs.
