Our guiding principle at Dragon Oil is People First. This principle is promoted throughout the Group from the senior management through to our colleagues operating in the field. We issued a new Code of Conduct in 2009 and will be publishing an updated Code of Conduct to ensure that all employees are treated in a fair manner throughout the Group.
We actively encourage cultural diversity throughout the Group and are a major employer in Hazar area, Turkmenistan with a high proportion of staff originating from our host country, while over 40 nationalities are represented in our headquarters in Dubai. Dragon Oil uses its contacts within local universities and colleges in Turkmenistan to source skilled candidates offering them the opportunity to develop a long-term career within the Group. Dragon Oil promotes a spirit of cross-cultural understanding enabling the Group to take advantage of a wide range of international skills and experience.
