A Great Place to Work


Vermilion continues to demonstrate excellent results in the Great Place to Work Institute’s® Best Workplaces competition, which we use as a tool for continuous improvement in our culture and people practices.

In 2019, Vermilion was recognized as being among the:

The rankings are based on the Institute’s two-fold approach, which includes an independent assessment of our culture along with our employees' confidential responses to the Institute’s survey.

Our rankings – and staff participation rates – have remained strong since we began our involvement with the Institute in 2010. Our 2018 global participation rate for employees was 80%.

In part, we attribute our strong results to the importance we place on reviewing and addressing the staff feedback shared through each business unit’s annual survey. We believe this is so important that we ask staff in all business units to participate in the survey, regardless of whether their staff count meets the minimum requirement to compete for Best Workplace recognition. This is the case in Australia and the United States, where our staff count is below the qualifying threshold.

Through the survey results, we gain a strong understanding of why our people choose to come to Vermilion, what they value and why they choose to stay. Competitive total compensation, exciting opportunities for growth and development, and pride in how we give back to the communities where our people live and work continue to be reasons why our voluntary turnover rate is among the lowest in our industry.

Here are just a handful of unabridged comments from staff on what makes our company a great place to work:

Vermilion's commitment to people - it is a refreshing take on how a company takes care of its people, and where that in turn encourages employees to want to take care of the company that takes care of them so well. It is a nice feeling, especially for such a large organization! Big Company with a Small Company/Family feel.

Vermilion's founders are driven by integrity, opportunities who bring a wealth of experience working well with and leading people. Vermilion managers and executives are in tune with the environment we are in and they have beneficial contingencies to choose from. They global focus is exciting and the balance of properties around the world is viewed well by investors.

This is a great place to work due to the way upper management and field personnel are able to relate and communicate with each other. It gives it that small company family feel. Also the culture that Vermilion exhibits in the way of HSE and also in community and family values is second to none which is one of the reasons this is a great place to work.
