Recently, Talos Energy announced that they will be the recipients of 2018’s No. 1 small company to work for in Houston, which is presented by WorkplaceDynamics. CEO of Talos Energy Tim Duncan commented on the announcement saying that this was possible not because of weekday happy hour or motivational speeches, but by the fact that the company runs as a team and every member of Talos feels like their work matters in the final outcome of the company. Their method of doing business comes to no surprise as the company is known to hold an internal entrepreneurial spirit amongst their employees and the ventures taken by the company.
Talos Energy has had to overcome a lot of obstacles these past few years, from sinking oil prices to having to move many of their assets into more risky areas of the globe, Talos Energy fought its way through and has come out a big winner in the oil industry. CEO Tim Duncan attributes much of this success to his staff and employees, the comments on the fact they progress in a sort of boat manner in which everyone steps in and rows together, whether the boat sinks or floats is determined by everyone. With over 120 employees on their payroll, Talos Energy does not offer the best pay or greatest benefits, however, what it does offer its employees is meaningful work. Tim Duncan adds to his statement pertaining to the award, that when he gets emails for potential projects or other types of opportunities, those emails are shared with the employees of Talos, why? Because Duncan wants them all to know that he is always working hard to be able to make them and the company money. There is no doubt that Talos Energy seems to provide some of the best working environments for employees.
