Volunteering in Communities

Through the Helping component of Nexen's ReachOut program, our employee volunteers bring a human face to Nexen and show the value that we bring as neighbours, partners and employers in the communities where we live and work. In 2012, Nexen contributed approximately $576,000 through our volunteer program.

Nexen Volunteer Days

The employee volunteer program provides eligible regular full-time and part-time Nexen employees (minimum of 20 hours per week) with up to two paid days leave annually to volunteer with local charities and/or other recognized community organizations.

In 2012, our employees contributed more than 12,000 hours to the community through Nexen volunteer days, team-building and summer student volunteer events and secondments. When monetized, these hours represent $410,000 of value given back to communities.

Nexen Volunteer Grants

Nexen employees volunteering a minimum of 40 hours of their personal time with a recognized charitable or amateur sports organization can apply for a grant to be paid to that organization.

Grants are divided into two categories:

  • $250 for amateur sports organizations
  • $1,000 for charitable / not-for-profit organizations

Employees may be eligible for both categories in a calendar year provided they have accumulated the required number of personal volunteer hours in each category.

In 2012, Nexen provided $166,000 in grants to qualified organizations where our employees volunteer.
