Employee development

We foster a culture of learning and development to support employees as they grow and stay with us through each stage of their career.

We also offer internal job movement to provide employees with valuable opportunities to gain new connections, strengthen their skills, apply them in new ways and achieve their career aspirations.

We offer leadership development for up-and-coming leaders, as well as established ones, and recognize the importance of continuous learning. As a fully integrated energy company, we see the opportunities that come with sharing knowledge and expertise across our business and areas of operations.
