Employee participation

ExxonMobil employees are passionate about engaging in their local communities and we encourage them to contribute to the communities where they live and work by granting time off to volunteer with charitable organizations.

Report

Employee participation

ExxonMobil offers several programs that allow our employees and retirees to maximize their charitable activities. Our volunteer involvement program encourages employees, retirees and their families to volunteer and contribute their time and talent to charitable organizations, either individually or in teams. In the United States, the program provides qualified nonprofit organizations a $500 donation on their behalf for every 20 hours volunteered, up to four times per volunteer per year. Where applicable, ExxonMobil’s modified workweek program provides supervisors the flexibility to work with employees to adjust their work schedules to participate in such events.

Performance and initiatives

Volunteering and charitable giving are important values for ExxonMobil. In total, more than 17,000 ExxonMobil employees, retirees and their families donated more than 483,000 volunteer hours to nearly 4,100 charitable organizations in 26 countries in 2017.

Our educational matching gift program matches employee and retiree donations to U.S. higher education institutions at a ratio of 3-to-1. In 2016, nearly 4,436 employees and retirees donated more than $17 million to nearly 856 colleges and universities, as well as minority scholarship programs, which the ExxonMobil Foundation matched with more than $32 million in 2017. For the arts, our primary funding is through the ExxonMobil Foundation’s matching gift programs. These programs encourage and assist employees and retirees in their personal giving to cultural institutions by providing a matching contribution.
