Chevron CEO John Watson on oil prices, what makes America No. 1 in energy, and why he wants to keep his company in California

Chevron CEO John Watson on oil prices, what makes America No. 1 in energy, and why he wants to keep his company in California | The Tribe | Scoop.it

"I have a lot of tech friends and the common view is that jobs are portable. You build your skillset. You can't trust the company you're with and you move on. That may be true in some business, in some careers, in some technologies.That is not what we tell the people we hire. I just described we're in a long-cycle business, and we don't hire people knowingly that we don't think can stay with us."

The Pioneers's insight:

Great culture isn't about ball pits in the office or being allowed to wear hoodies to work. It's about living and working by the values that are important to you and your employees.

The #1 Feature of a Meaningless Job

The #1 Feature of a Meaningless Job | The Tribe | Scoop.it

mAsk people what they want in a job, and meaningfulness looms large. For decades, Americans have ranked purpose as their top priority—above promotions, income, job security, and hours. Work is a search “for daily meaning as well as daily bread,” wrote Studs Terkel after interviewing hundreds of people in a striking array of jobs. Yet all too often, we feel that our work doesn’t matter. “Most of us have jobs that are too small for our spirit. Jobs are not big enough for people.”What makes a job me
