  Strengthening Leadership in the Middle Magdalena Valley
A heightened focus on training and career development is aimed at creating opportunities for advancement and strengthened local leadership in the field at GTE’s worksites. In addition to meeting its local hiring objectives, GTE aims to inspire the workforce by showing them pathways for success within the operation.
A program identifying promising employees
for special training, strengthened leadership within the organization in its Middle Magdalena Valley operations. This program also played a role in helping set the fastest drilling rate in company history. In 2020, the company will conduct additional coaching and mentoring
for leaders and front-line workers.
In 2016, Jesus Eduardo Jaime was hired to support rig operations during a critical year for the global hydrocarbon industry, with GTE being one of
the few companies in Colombia actively drilling new wells. Jesus quickly distinguished himself
and was selected to test for one of the three rig operator trainee positions. His test results, along with his attitude and aptitude led to his assistant derrickman promotion before ultimately being named derrickman in 2019.
The company has created a lot of opportunities – all of the workers here are from the area. I believe our personal success is due to our performance and attitude towards others. It’s thanks to GTE that I’ve been able to advance my life and family goals.
Jesus Eduardo Jaime,
Derrickman, Gran Tierra Energy
