We aim to do business in a consistent and transparent way with all our clients and do not hold equity stakes in our customers’ assets. Customers place a great deal of trust in us, particularly when it comes to handling sensitive and confidential information. Our reputation for integrity and fair dealing is vitally important in winning and retaining this trust.
Today, our real-time technology services and solutions enable customers to translate acquired data into useful information, then transform this information into knowledge for improved decision making-anytime, anywhere. Harnessing information technology in this way offers enormous opportunities to enhance efficiency and productivity. This is a quantum leap from providing traditional ‘just-in-case’ information to delivering ‘just-in-time’ knowledge that meets the changing needs of our customers.
We’re at the forefront of our industry. Virtually everything we use in the field is created, developed, and manufactured by Schlumberger people. Every year, we invest more than a billion dollars in R&E for oilfield technologies. We recruit from a global pool of universities and technical institutes. Our people are one of our greatest assets, and our continued success depends on recruiting those whose expectations and ambitions best fit our diverse business environment and culture. Both our recruiting and training programs are structured to achieve a motivated, mobile, and professional workforce that can provide excellence in job execution and service delivery anywhere in the world. We invest more time and resources in our training and development programs than any other oilfield services company. We believe an effective training program is one that addresses the needs of the company and individual. Our goal is to develop competent and effective employees through learning opportunities that complement their jobs and promote individual growth. In an ever-changing industry, our training programs constantly evolve to meet new business challenges.
