We want our employees to have careers that are professionally challenging, personally rewarding, and focused on delivering value to our stakeholders. In 2015, we hired 54 new employees to bring our total number of employees at year end to 256 worldwide. We incorporate the ideas and experiences new employees bring to our organization while retaining our unique culture and upholding our Business Principles. Kosmos focuses on recruiting, retaining, and developing a diverse and capable workforce of talented people who embrace our Business Principles and entrepreneurial culture. We are an equal opportunity employer and do not tolerate harassment or intimidation of any kind. Employees are respected and encouraged to contribute their ideas. We base employee recruitment and advancement solely on merit and will not tolerate discrimination, subject only to the need to ensure that, in some contexts, we seek to accelerate the recruitment and advancement of suitably qualified nationals of the countries in which we operate. We seek to hire and develop local employees for our international operations. We are proud that in Ghana and Mauritania, 100 percent of our employees are citizens of those countries. This level of local employment is a long-term target for Kosmos in all of the countries where we have operations. We are also committed to investing in the development of our employees. For example, employees hired in Ghana, Mauritania, Senegal, and Suriname have rotated through our Dallas headquarters on special assignments. These development opportunities have enabled them to assume greater responsibility and handle the increasingly complex work that we are moving to local offices. We augment our internal programs with external development opportunities through our Education Reimbursement Policy. We recognize fundamental labor rights and require our contractors to adhere to international labor standards and local laws. We will not permit child, forced, or bonded labor at our operations or among our suppliers. In 2015, we conducted a labor rights risk assessment of select operations to better understand our level of risk, both at the current stage of our operations and in the future. Kosmos is a relatively small company with a fast-paced, collaborative work environment and a high level of employee engagement. We have instituted programs to ensure employees remain engaged as the company evolves. These programs include Town Hall meetings, during which senior management provides an operational update and holds an open forum, as well as monthly cross-departmental brown bag lunches with members of Kosmos’ senior leadership team. Support staff in Accra, Ghana complete a training on Kosmos Energy’s Business Principles and supporting policies. “Prior to my joining Kosmos Energy Ghana, I was impressed with the company’s commitment to the country after finding oil in 2007. I was not surprised when I heard that the company was looking to make it a one hundred percent Ghanaian staffed entity by hiring a Ghanaian national as Country Manager. I am proud I made the decision to join Kosmos Energy to fulfill this commitment. Kosmos Energy’s interest is really vested in the development of Ghana and its people.” JOE MENSAH Vice President and Country Manager Kosmos Energy Ghana OUR WORKPLACES PRINCIPLE BUSINESS 3 Kosmos ranked 25th among mid-size companies in the Dallas Morning News rankings of the Top 100 Places to Work 2015, our third year earning a position on the list. 10 10
