Retention and engagement
Our global, diverse workforce represents a source of competitive advantage for ExxonMobil. We retain and develop our employees by fostering an environment where personal and professional growth is encouraged, and career objectives are developed and achieved. During the annual performance assessment and development process, every employee has a structured, documented discussion with their supervisors about work accomplishments, training objectives, development opportunities and career interests. This process provides the basis for ongoing employee coaching and continuous performance improvement. The company’s training programs, mentorships and networking opportunities also help employees grow and develop throughout their time at ExxonMobil.
Another aspect of our retention and engagement strategy involves providing a robust corporate and technical training program. Our major business units spent $96 million on training employees in 2013, reaching more than 87,000 non-unique training participants. To maintain our position as a technical leader in the industry, we directed more than 71 percent of our investment toward professional technical training. Additionally, more than 3,900 employees at various levels of the company participated in ExxonMobil’s leadership development training programs in 2013, of which 30 percent were women and 59 percent were employees outside the United States.
