Devon Ethics and Compliance Helpline
A reputation of integrity is one of the most valuable assets a company can possess. Devon's reputation has been built over many years and is dependent on the integrity and sense of responsibility demonstrated by our employees. Devon is committed to high ethical, moral, professional, and legal standards and is dedicated to operating its business consistent with these high standards of business conduct and ethics. These characteristics are an integral part of our corporate values and culture and promote an environment of integrity and accountability that permits us to be an honest and trustworthy business partner, employer, and a good corporate citizen.

We appreciate all input and all concerns will be taken seriously and retaliation against anyone who raises an allegation in good faith is prohibited.
