+ADw-p+AD4-Rigzone’s Ideal Employer Survey reveals how North America respondents’ values at work differ from other respondents.+ADw-/p+AD4

+ADw-p+AD4-More than 6,500 oil and gas professionals from around the globe expressed what they deem the most important attribute in a company in +ADw-strong+AD4APA-a href+AD0AIg- target+AD0AIgBf-blank+ACIAPg-Rigzone+IBk-s second annual Ideal Employer Survey+ADw-/a+AD4APA-/strong+AD4.+ADw-/p+AD4
+ADw-p+AD4-Just like factors such as +ADw-a href+AD0AIg- target+AD0AIgBf-blank+ACIAPgA8-strong+AD4-employment status+ADw-/strong+AD4APA-/a+AD4 and +ADw-a href+AD0AIg- target+AD0AIgBf-blank+ACIAPgA8-strong+AD4-industry sector+ADw-/strong+AD4APA-/a+AD4 influenced respondents+IBk opinions, in some cases so did their respective geographic region. The survey found significant differences in attribute importance among North America respondents and their counterparts in the rest of the world (ROW).+ADw-/p+AD4
+ADw-p+AD4-Ranking in a three-way tie for top company attribute according to North America respondents were +IBw-Commitment to Health and Safety,+IB0 +IBw-Competitive Salary+IB0 and +IBw-Manages Business with Integrity.+IB0 While a +IBw-Commitment to Health and Safety+IB0 was also the top attribute for respondents from the rest of the world, +IBw-Challenging/Interesting Work+IB0 ranked second, followed by +IBw-Competitive Salary+IB0 ranking third.+ADw-/p+AD4

+ADw-p+AD4-The importance of salary in North America may be due in part to the competitive nature of salaries. In the oil and gas industry+IBk-s recovery, the Permian has had record production numbers and the industry can+IBk-t get workers in those areas fast enough. As a result, some +ADw-a href+AD0AIg- target+AD0AIgBf-blank+ACIAPgA8-strong+AD4-companies are now willing to pay top dollar for drillers, service providers and truckers+ADw-/strong+AD4APA-/a+AD4.+ADw-/p+AD4
+ADw-p+AD4-North America respondents also rate +IBw-Manages Business with Integrity+IB0 (first) higher than those from the rest of the world (fourth). Some estimates have reported that the +ADw-a href+AD0AIg- target+AD0AIgBf-blank+ACIAPgA8-strong+AD4-U.S. accounted for 40 percent of the industry+IBk-s layoffs during the recent downturn+ADw-/strong+AD4APA-/a+AD4. And +ADw-a href+AD0AIg- target+AD0AIgBf-blank+ACIAPgA8-strong+AD4-Rigzone+IBk-s survey exploring what happened to laid off industry workers+ADw-/strong+AD4APA-/a+AD4 found that 29 percent of U.S. respondents feel +IBw-uncertain+IB0 about the industry. So, it+IBk-s not hard to understand why some North America respondents will be a bit cautious about the industry and desire employers who conduct themselves ethically. +AKAAoACgADw-/p+AD4
+ADw-h2+AD4-Other Regional Differences+ADw-/h2+AD4
+ADw-p+AD4-Oil and gas professionals in the rest of the world value +IBw-Challenging/Interesting Work+IB0 (ranked second) just above salary and more so than respondents from North America, who rank it fourth most important.+ADw-/p+AD4
+ADw-p+AD4-While +IBw-Solid Training and Development Programs+IB0 ranked in a three-way tie for fourth among respondents from the rest of the world, it wasn+IBk-t as important to respondents from North America. It tied for seventh along with +IBw-Financial Performance/Strength of Firm+IB0 for North American respondents.+ADw-/p+AD4
+ADw-p+AD4-Additionally, North America respondents ranked +IBw-Strong Executive Leadership+IB0 (fourth) higher than their counterparts in other countries (seventh).+ADw-/p+AD4
