MRO Named a houston top workplace
november 2018 – houston


Marathon Oil was named one of Houston's Top Workplaces for 2018 by the Houston Chronicle.

This year's Top Workplace selections are based on 2018 results from employee engagement surveys administered by Energage, a leading research firm that specializes in organizational health and workplace improvement. These surveys measure critical aspects of workplace culture affecting overall employee engagement, such as alignment, connection, motivation, and willingness to refer others to work for the company.

More than 80,000 Houston-area employees responded to these surveys from more than 250 area employers. The top 150 companies were honored as Top Workplaces, with 35 of those in the large company category which also included Marathon Oil.

88 percent of our employees responded to the survey, providing approximately 3,700 comments.

"Great performance is achieved by great people," said Deanna Jones, SVP – HR, Communications and Administration. "Candor and openness have been critical in building a work environment that enables our people to grow and thrive. We deeply appreciate the feedback provided by our employees through this survey."
