(Image source: US Government/Commons)The survey by Rigzone is the first of its kind after the financial depression in 2008 and reveals the best employees in the oil market and the key issues for working oil professionals 

The survey undertaken by Rigzone interviewed by 8,400 oil professionals in more than 100 countries and revealed that Shell, Chevron, ExxonMobil, BP and Halliburton have been ranked as the top five employers, with Shell being marked as number one. 

For oil professionals across the world, with 90 per cent stating this, overall a commitment to health and safety is the single most important attribute for people working in the upstream,  midstream and downstream sectors across the world. The people surveyed were asked questions on key issues for the the oil and gas industries, such as values, performance and pay rates. 

Rigzone''s managing director, James Bennet said, "The results are revealing as this is the first major survey to be conducted with the global workforce, and against a background of continuing challenging economic circumstances for the sector.

“That the largest companies in the sector complete the top 30, the majority having undergone significant change due to the effects of the downturn in the past 18 months, will give them confidence that the workforce remain committed to the sector.” 

Shell's HR VP for South Africa, Jonathan Kohn said that, "Shell people are our strongest ambassadors and we are proud of the quality of the people that we've got. I think it's pretty clear and central to the group's strategy that having that access to quality people really is part of how we compete to win.”
