Discovery Natural Resources’ values are the foundation for our company’s culture. These values guide the behavior of the organization and our people, helping to define what we expect of ourselves and each other. They also have enabled us to build a transparent, performance-based culture enabling our people to understand how their contributions and skill sets directly impact the success of their team and their company. Our culture instills a loyalty and pride that is clearly expressed when our employees say, “I work for Discovery Natural Resources.”
