Empowering Our Employees
Innovation demands a positive, energizing workplace. At Dril-Quip, we value our employee's well-being and strive to ensure they feel engaged, respected, and empowered in every way. Our commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion extends beyond our employees to their families—a total approach enriching our culture and legacy.
Cultivating a Culture of Well-Being
At Dril-Quip, we believe that a healthy, supported workforce is the cornerstone of our success, and we remain steadfast in our commitment to fostering a vibrant workplace culture.
Under the banner of "Safety: It's Personal," we actively engage our team in Basic CPR and First Aid training, fostering a safer workplace. Our commitment extends to wellness initiatives such as chair massages, where many employees experience relaxation and stress relief. The success of our "30 Days of Yoga" program, catering to both novice and experienced participants, underscores our dedication to mental and physical health. We prioritize hydration and sun protection for our outdoor workforce, offering frozen fruit, electrolyte-infused water, and sunscreen. Additionally, our annual Health Fair brings together various vendors for health screenings, dental and vision checks, and flu vaccinations.
Assessing Our Culture In Real-Time
Providing our employees with a rich experience is crucial to mutual success. To achieve this, Dril-Quip periodically conducts independent, third-party surveys, tracking cultural metrics with real-time feedback on engagement and well-being, including physical, emotional, social, and financial health.
Employee Resource Groups
Because inclusivity is a top priority, we strive to create a positive and energizing workplace for everyone. Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) provide an additional layer of the community, including:
Women's Empowerment Network (WEN)
At Dril-Quip, we are dedicated to fostering a workplace where diversity thrives and all voices are heard. That's why our global Women Empowerment Network.
(WEN) was founded in 2021. WEN is more than just an initiative; it's a vibrant community within our organization dedicated to empowering and uplifting all our employees, regardless of gender. We recognize that diversity drives innovation and progress, and we are committed to ensuring that everyone has every opportunity to excel in their careers through mentorship programs, leadership development, networking events, and educational resources throughout all regions where Dril-Quip operates. WEN provides a supportive platform to grow both personally and professionally. We aim to break barriers, shatter glass ceilings, and create an inclusive environment where all individuals can thrive.
Our Activities Committee takes the lead in organizing year-round events that foster camaraderie and connection among our employees. From exciting chili cookoffs and family festivals to delightful ice cream socials and lively crawfish boils, these engaging and entertaining activities unite our workforce in a spirit of unity and celebration. At Dril-Quip, we believe in creating memorable moments beyond the workplace, enhancing the sense of community among our dedicated team. The Activities Committee also plans events for employees to give back to the community through volunteer projects.
Bettering The Best Through Training
Recruiting, developing, and retaining the best talent is critical to our success. To that end, we offer comprehensive training and development programs that encourage advancement from within Dril-Quip at every level of the organization.
Fostering Future Leadership
A vital component of our human capital strategy is the identification and professional development of future leadership. Every year, we assess employees' competencies on strategic, operational, and transformational leadership criteria. Applying a range of workforce analytics and demographics for diversity, inclusion, hiring, and attrition, our Board of Directors oversees the process of leadership succession throughout the organization.
3D@DQ: A Global Approach To Performance Management
In 2021, Dril-Quip launched 3D@DQ, our performance management approach. It focuses on three core elements in which we DEFINE goals, DISCUSS feedback, and DEVELOP capabilities. A critical aspect of our process, it combines traditional performance development with contemporary features to help build and reinforce our desired culture globally.
Accommodating An Evolving Workforce
We understand that the men and women working for us have obligations outside Dril-Quip. To foster a healthy and productive culture, we provide flexible benefits that include remote and in-office work.
Going Above And Beyond For Dril-Quip Families
In Houston, where there are no state government allowances for family leave, we have implemented a Family Care Program. Employees with a child or finalized qualified adoption are eligible for paid bonding leave or payout through this program.
