Our culture

At Woodside Energy, we pride ourselves on our inclusive, high-performing culture. Guided by our values, we support our people to reach their full potential.

We know great results come from people feeling valued and getting the support they need to reach their full potential.


No matter your professional and personal background, we offer supportive pathways to leadership, growth and achievement at Woodside.
Woodside is reshaping the way we imagine and deliver leadership development: We want our leaders (technical and generalist) at all levels to experience meaningful and practical development as they progress through our leadership tiers. Critical to our development program is the learner experience, coming from relevant, quality content and dynamic delivery methods.
Our clearly outlined learning programs, policies, leadership frameworks, technical competencies and development tools encourage our people to build on their individual strengths and motives to create their future.
Our success is driven by our people, so we aim to attract, develop and retain a diverse, high-performing workforce.


Everything we do is guided by our values.

Inspired by our common purpose, our values drive everything we do. At Woodside, we care about our people and the environment and communities we operate in. Our guiding compass, challenging, respecting, and backing each other to explore ideas and find creative solutions. By doing what we say and doing it well, we are finding new ways to provide the energy the world needs today and low-cost, lower-carbon energy for tomorrow.

Inclusion and Diversity

Woodside is an increasingly inclusive and diverse company. We want all Woodsiders to feel safe in bringing their whole selves to work and confident they will get a fair go.

Our employee impact groups

The Woodside employee impact groups are an important way our people build our culture, while developing their skills. The groups have an active role to play with formal committees leading the group developing the annual strategies, plans and budgets for activities and events. 

We are confident that every team member will find at least one community they can get involved in.

Our employee impact groups often explore intersectional topics through joint events. In September, CALD and EDGE hosted an event in Perth called Cracking the Glass Cultural Ceiling focused on culturally diverse female talent in leadership positions.

There are two additional employee impact groups linked to our efforts towards sustainability and climate:
• SPARK (focused on Environmental, Social, and Governance topics) 
• WECAN (Woodside Energy Climate Awareness Network).
