Our workforce

We consider our approximately 73,500 employees to be our greatest asset. For this reason, ExxonMobil seeks to foster a diverse workforce of highly talented individuals who are dedicated to integrity, high-quality work and good corporate citizenship.

Our career-oriented approach to developing an exceptional workforce includes recruiting outstanding talent and supporting long-term professional development.

Retention and engagement

Our global, diverse workforce represents a competitive advantage for ExxonMobil. We retain and develop our employees by providing an environment where personal and professional growth is encouraged and career objectives are developed and achieved.

We communicate openly with our employees through frequent one-on-one and team discussions as well as larger organizational meetings. All employees undergo an annual performance assessment and development process, during which they have the opportunity to engage in a structured, documented discussion with their supervisors about work accomplishments, learning objectives, development opportunities and career interests. This process, coupled with company training, mentorship programs and networking opportunities, provide the basis for ongoing employee growth and continual performance improvement.

ExxonMobil also offers a variety of workplace flexibility programs to maintain engagement and maximize productivity by addressing individual employee needs. These workplace flexibility programs differ based on the legal requirements, infrastructure and culture of locations where we do business. Examples of workplace flexibility programs include adaptable workplace arrangements, modified workweek, part-time regular employment and adjustable work hours. Our goal is to be responsive to the needs of employees throughout their careers and into Retirement.

Employee benefits

Our benefits programs are an integral part of a total remuneration package designed to support our long-term business objectives, as well as attract, retain and reward the most qualified employees.
