Back in the day, when we started as a brand new company at the end of 2011 after our spin-off from a pipeline conglomerate, we rolled out six core values for our workforce.
We were inspired, involved, determined, disciplined, committed and connected. We're still all those things, but six was a long list and (quite frankly) really hard to recall offhand.
They served their purpose, but today we want something that's simpler and more memorable since our company culture and business portfolio have radically changed.
More than 50 people across the company participated in focus groups to recreate and rewrite our new values that were introduced just in time for 2020.
One of our key stakeholders in Tulsa says they're spot-on. She said, "Those values are totally foundational. I've seen all those things in my interactions with WPX people."
Our President Clay Gaspar was instrumental in introducing the new values to our organization. Here's a video of Clay talking about the importance of defining who we are.
