Key Metrics


At December 31, 2018, our global team comprised 1,023 people, compared to 685 at December 31, 2017. In 2018:


51% of our workforce is located in North America, 41% in Europe and 8% in Western Australia. 


Our workforce gender split is slightly more balanced than that of the global oil and gas industry, which reported 22% women according to a 2017 study by The Boston Consulting Group and the World Petroleum Council. 


Although we do not currently have a formal policy in place addressing the representation of women in senior management positions, two out of 10 (20%) Directors on our Board are female and one out of four (25%) of our senior management team is female. In 2018, 16% of leadership roles at Vermilion were held by women. We are continuing to focus on supporting more women to reach leadership positions; this includes developing our high potential female employees through the creation of a pilot mentoring program that launched in 2018. This program matches participants with members of the Vermilion Management Team (Executives and Direct Reports of Executives).


By nurturing and protecting our culture, we believe we attract and retain the best of the best. Our successful efforts are best measured by our consistently low voluntary turnover rate. In 2018, our voluntary turnover rate was 4.3%, retirements were 1.4%, and total turnover was 8%. 401-1


In 2018, our formal training and development constituted 13,023 hours.
