Community engagement

Working with communities

We seek to deliver sustainable economic growth, social development and environmental protection, so that actions today might enable future generations to meet their needs.

Strategic community investment

Workforce development

Hiring and training a local workforce in our areas of operation is a long-standing priority for ExxonMobil. We provide locally hired individuals with opportunities to develop technical and leadership skills that will benefit them throughout their careers, both with ExxonMobil and with future employers. By doing so, we aim to enhance the long-term capability of local workforces in areas where we operate. Our training programs include the provision of information on ethical business conduct, health and safety, management skills and fundamentals of the oil and gas industry, as well as relevant technical and vocational skills.

Stakeholder engagement

We recognize the significant responsibilities we have to our shareholders, neighbors, customers and communities as we find ways to bring affordable energy to the global market. For a company of our size and scope, building and maintaining relationships with a diverse group of stakeholders is critical. Regular stakeholder engagement helps us understand a variety of perspectives and improve our company’s performance.

Because our business directly affects many people around the world, we seek to understand their viewpoints. We interact with our diverse stakeholders through a variety of mechanisms, including community meetings, web and social media content, corporate publications, and one-on-one and group discussions.

Supplier development

We understand the importance of building and maintaining a qualified and globally competitive supply chain in host countries. ExxonMobil works with a range of stakeholders, including host country governments, nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) and local communities to support the development of local vendors.
