Reliable sources are reporting that the oilfield services company in Houston has closed its Organizational Ombuds Office (known as "o3"). The closure came about six months after Baker Hughes was acquired by General Electric Co., which has an "Ombudsman Process" that functions like an audit department. The Baker Hughes o3 office opened in 2012 and its Ombuds--Melanie (Lewis) Jagneaux and Bonnie Bonnivier--quickly became engaged in professional activities as speakers and leaders.
According to her LinkedIn profile, Bonnivier has retired.
