Healthy and engaged workforce

 This approach supports the health of workers and surrounding communities where we operate. Our health management systems have recently been enhanced to focus on high-priority health issues and safeguards. These elements enable ExxonMobil to address total workforce health more effectively.

When the COVID-19 pandemic emerged in early 2020, our emergency preparedness and response procedures were swiftly triggered at the country, regional and facility levels, building on lessons learned from SARS, Pandemic Flu, MERS and Ebola. Our preventive and mitigation safeguards, combined with coordinated internal communications, helped protect the health and safety of our workers and their dependents. Our measures were continually refined as more information about the virus was identified, in consultation with internal and external health experts.

When vaccines became available, they were globally promoted for early access by our employees through administration sites in the community and our workplaces, in close collaboration with local health authorities. Extensive information on the vaccines, COVID-19 and safeguard adaptation were periodically communicated to workers through multiple channels, including webinars with world-renowned experts.

Concurrently, we globally deployed resilience programs and made mental health initiatives available to employees and dependents, effectively supporting them in minimizing the substantial impact of the pandemic on their personal and professional lives.
