Strong company culture builds the core strength of a business. By bringing together diverse voices and cultivating a welcoming environment, we strive to support our people, contractors, customers and communities. Inclusion, dignity and equality make up the character of Nabors.


Human Capital and Technology

Our commitment encompasses all components affecting our employees whether related to our employees, contractors, customers, suppliers or, through a broader lens, our communities.

Human Rights and Labor Practices

Nabors is committed to respecting the basic rights of the people with whom we work with and avoiding engagement in any activity that encourages or solicits the abuse of another’s human rights. 

We exercise due diligence to identify and prevent human rights risks throughout our global operations. Our Human Rights policy details our expectation to our employees, joint venture partners, suppliers, vendors and stakeholders around the world.

Health and Safety

Safety stands front and center in our corporate values because we believe all of our global operations can and must achieve our mission of zero incidents and zero injuries. Every employee accepts this condition of employment but, more importantly, we want everyone to go home their family at the end of each day.

Training and Development

Recruiting the best is not enough, we also plan for the long-term success of employees to ensure a high-performing and high-reliability workforce. It is part of our DNA to help employees cultivate skills for increased proficiency, safety and overall performance. We do this through a variety of educational methods and programs, including instructor-led training, computer-based training, microlearnings and on-the-job experiences.

Talent Management

Nabors’ talent management programs aim to reduce turnover and improve our bench strength. A thoughtful structure provides the framework for development through succession planning, career paths, high-value/high-potential identification and performance appraisals.

Diversity and Inclusion

We embrace diversity and inclusion. From hiring to retention to development, our process places a priority on building an inclusive environment across race, gender, age, national origin, religion and unique perspectives and ideas.

Spotlight on Community Partnerships

North Dakota - For any rigs operating on the Fort Berthold reservation, hiring preferences are given to members of the Mandan, Hidatsa, Arikara Nation (MHA).  We work with the MHA Tribal Employment Rights Office who provides us with referrals via email.

Colombia -  Community Relations (CR) Supervisor is a position created specifically to help with social responsibilities in local communities including hiring.  The CR Supervisor’s role focuses on encouraging and monitoring labor participation from communities including indigenous population and mapping of personnel from critical and strategic communities.




The heart of our global staff is evident in the many events in which we participate or we sponsor in our communities. Many begin as labors of love and have continued over the years, exemplifying our commitment to our neighbors and the true desire to make a difference. You’ll find our staff organizing blood drives, planting trees and feeding the hungry. Globally, we promote recruiting partnerships with the indigenous communities in which we operate with a focus of hiring indigenous people.

Political Advocacy

Nabors rarely makes contributions to political candidates or political parties, and then only as permitted by applicable law. We encourage the lawful personal and financial participation of directors, officers and employees in the elective, civic, welfare, political, educational and similar activities that serve the public interest. Staff who take part in such activities (other than company-sponsored civic activities) do so, as private citizens and not on behalf of Nabors.

Additionally, directors, officers and employees will not engage in political or civic activities (other than company-sponsored civic activities), while on company time, and will not use company resources, including equipment, for any political or civic activities (other than company-sponsored civic activities) or discussions. Directors, officers and employees will not be reimbursed by the company for any political contributions.

An employee’s personal lawful political contribution, or decision to abstain from contributions, does not influence their compensation, job security or opportunities for career advancement. No political contribution is reimbursable by Nabors.

Customer Relations

Recognizing communications must be a two-way street, we frequently seek feedback to ensure we are exceeding customers’ expectations. Our groundbreakers anticipate these needs to deliver differential solutions. It is how Nabors has maintained its status as the performance driller of choice.

The transaction between vendor and customer has evolved far beyond a mere exchange of money and goods. These purchases now bear the expectation of social impact. As other issues rise in importance, it is critical to include our sustainability priorities in the value proposition.
