Training and Development

2018 marked the seventh year of Noble Energy’s leadership development program, LEAD (Learn, Excel, Achieve and Develop). Of our current executives, 44 percent are graduates of the course or the Executive LEAD program. These 12-month programs prepare individual performers (LEAD) and mid- to senior-level leaders (Executive LEAD) for future succession opportunities. In 2018, 46 employees completed the LEAD program and 5 completed the Executive LEAD program.

Our Wave affinity group for early career professionals hosted a half-day career development conference. Nearly 80 Houston professionals attended a workshop on building credibility and a panel discussion led by four employees who have pursued diverse career paths. Early career employees in Denver and Greeley connected via teleconference to experience the workshop.

In 2018, 27 students participated in our summer intern program – 18 in Houston, 5 in Denver, and 4 in Greeley. We assign our interns a special project to work on throughout the summer. At the end of the internship program, each intern makes a presentation to Noble Energy employees and fellow interns on the outcomes of their projects, as well as lessons learned. We also invite our interns to participate in the early career conference hosted by the Wave affinity group.
