Job Creation and Workforce Development

After acquiring and integrating three Colombian oil companies, Gran Tierra has focused on building “one team” committed to fostering cohesion across all of the Company’s operations with the goal of maximizing efficiency and prioritizing safety practices.

GTE continues to maximize local hiring of skilled employees from areas neighbouring our operations. In addition, the Company is focused on preparing promising employees to take on greater responsibility through development programs that open pathways for them to progress within the company. As part of its effort to address the UN Sustainable Development Goals, GTE continues to train women both inside and outside the Company.

GTE continues to create numerous economic development opportunities leading to life-improving changes for communities in Colombia’s Middle Magdalena Valley, Putumayo and Ecuador’s Sucumbíos regions. GTE brings its values to all of its activities and operations. These include going Beyond Compliance in respecting human rights, maintaining operational integrity, establishing a culture of safety, efficiency, stewardship of the environment, and collaboration with the Colombian government.
