Worksite health and wellness

The success of ExxonMobil’s operations depends on a healthy and competent workforce. We also provide voluntary health programs to our employees that promote enhanced well-being, while improving safety, productivity and resilience.

Worksite health and wellness

Our health policy communicates corporate expectations for identifying, evaluating and managing health risks related to our operations that can potentially affect our employees, contractors or the public. In each country, we develop workplace health programs that take into consideration local health care systems, health needs and available resources. ExxonMobil’s U.S.-based Culture of Health program is designed to support the health, safety and well-being of our employees and to reduce health plan costs. We provide health education, nutrition and fitness programs that meet the needs of a variety of work environments such as offices and manufacturing sites. We offer employees health coaching and disease management assistance. 

We continue to look for new opportunities to expand the reach of our Culture of Health program. For example, in 2017 we expanded the program to our affiliates in Brazil and Mexico. In all cases, the benefits plans we offer comply with or exceed applicable country laws or regulations for our workers and their dependents.

Performance and initiatives

We address the diverse health risks prevalent in the locations where we operate, including malaria, tuberculosis, HIV/AIDS, Ebola, Zika and other outbreaks with effective prevention and control programs. Since 2007, no malaria deaths have been reported among our workers.

Some locations pose heightened risk of malaria. We have developed rapid detection malaria drug tests in collaboration with the French Army Biomedical Institute. These tests, which provide immediate results, are helping reduce the number of malaria cases across our workforce.
