EOG’s Commitment to Employees

By providing employees with a quality culture and environment in which to work, EOG is able to attract and retain some of the exploration and production industry’s best and brightest, who will embrace the company’s commitment to corporate responsibility as the organization continues to expand.

The letters EOG epitomize a culture of Energy, Opportunity and Growth. It’s a highly collaborative organization where employees come first and continuously learn from one another. Driven from the bottom-up, employees understand that the company is, and has always been, a returns-focused, organic-growth organization. As a technology leader, EOG places a heavy emphasis on participation so that employees’ ideas and contributions are heard, appreciated and valued. This ensures that the entire organization is involved and engaged in company decision-making.

Because employee retention and engagement are very important, EOG offers competitive salaries and a subsidized, comprehensive benefits package. An annual equity grant program that includes all employees means that every employee is a shareholder and a participant in the company’s success.

EOG continues to be recognized as a Top Workplace by Workplace Dynamics based on its survey of employees across EOG’s operations. In the fall of 2016, EOG’s offices in Houston, Oklahoma City, San Antonio and Fort Worth were each recognized as a Top Workplace, providing a clear reflection of the company’s positive culture and work environment.

EOG is an Equal Opportunity and Affirmative Action employer and subscribes to a drug-free and smoke-free workplace. All employment decisions are made without regard to factors such as sex, race, color, age, religion, national origin, physical or mental disability, protected Veteran status, sexual orientation, gender identity or any other characteristic protected by law.

EOG’s Code of Business Conduct and Ethics

It is EOG’s policy to conduct all business in accordance with the highest ethical standards and in full compliance with the laws of all countries where it operates and to treat all employees fairly and with respect. All employees are required to acknowledge receipt of EOG’s Code of Business Conduct and Ethics when hired. The EOG Code of Business Conduct and Ethics states:

It is the policy of EOG Resources, Inc. and its subsidiaries (together, “EOG” or the “Company”) that the conduct of every director, officer and employee while acting on behalf of the Company shall be based upon the highest ethical standards and compliance with the law.”

“Compliance with Laws, Rules and Regulations
Obeying the law, both in letter and in spirit, is the foundation on which the Company’s ethical standards are built. All directors, officers and employees must respect and obey the laws of the cities, states and countries in which we operate.”

“Fair Treatment and Mutual Respect
The diversity of the Company’s employees is a tremendous asset. EOG policies are designed to ensure that all employees are treated fairly and with respect, by the Company and each other. We will hire, evaluate, transfer, compensate and promote employees based on skills and performance, not on unlawful considerations. We are firmly committed to providing equal opportunity in all aspects of employment and firmly committed to providing a workplace free of discrimination, harassment or segregation based on sex, race, color, age, religion, national origin, physical or mental disability, protected Veteran status, sexual orientation, gender identity or any other characteristic protected by law. This includes providing reasonable accommodation for employees’ disabilities or religious beliefs or practices. Similarly, offensive or hostile working conditions created by such harassment or discrimination will not be tolerated.”

Employees, officers and directors are expected to cooperate in reporting possible Code violations and in internal investigations of possible Code violations or other unethical or illegal conduct. The Company will not take adverse action or otherwise allow retaliation against any employee who in good faith reports a suspected violation of the Code or suspected illegal or unethical conduct. Any officer or employee who retaliates in any way against an employee who in good faith reports a violation or suspected violation of the Code will be subject to disciplinary action, which may include termination of employment.”

In addition to the Code of Business Conduct and Ethics, EOG has other written policies further promoting these ideals and standards. These policies are applicable to all employees and operations worldwide.
