Maha Team

Diversity and Teamwork

Respect for our employees and the people we work with is an integral part of Maha's business practice. We encourage dialogue, active listening, and collaboration systems to help share suggestions and ideas amongst the Team.

We value information sharing within the Company, but recognize that it must be managed responsibly and transparently to promote initiatives that turn personal knowledge into shared knowledge. The Management team is committed to remaining open and approachable so that employees feel they are able to raise concerns about equal opportunity related issues without the fear of harassment or intimidation.

We believe respect in the workplace creates empowerment at every level along with increased productivity.

Support and teamwork are important elements in any workplace, and at Maha we encourage collaboration and support between employees at all levels of expertise. We truly believe that to strive for excellence our job must be fun, challenging and rewarding.

Consultants and Contractors

Consultants and contractors are also closely intertwined into our operations and success. We are committed to ensure the same high level of professional conduct with our contractors and consultants as we do with our employees. We encourage an open and transparent dialogue with our contractors to improve the work environment and ensure safe and efficient work.

Local Employment and Procurement

As Maha grows and expands field operations, economic benefits trickle into the local economy through the hiring of local goods and services. We seek to create positive societal and economic impact across our value chain and contribute tax revenues to the government where which we work in.

At Maha, we believe in fostering talent on a national and local level. 100% of our in country general directors/managers are from the country we operate in. It is important these key managers are of national talent, since not only do they contribute with their oil and gas experience and education, but also contribute to Maha by navigating the cultural and societal realm.
