engaging employees to improve performance
The work environment at Chevron continually evolves to maximize the employee experience and drive high performance. Our culture of well-being motivates employees to work safely and productively. Chevron has several methods to engage employees, collect input and improve our performance. For more than 30 years, we have conducted an annual company-wide employee survey to measure and improve our culture and business results. In 2019, our internal scores were among the best in the industry, and this year, the survey had the highest response rate in recent history. In addition to the survey, our Human Resource Committee reviews workforce demographics to monitor diversity progress. We also obtain employee feedback through our Ombuds program, which provides a safe, confidential and neutral place to express concerns and develop solutions, including issues related to employee engagement and The Chevron Way values and culture.

partnering with MIT to enhance our workforce
To win in any environment, we need to prepare our leaders for a future that will rely heavily on digital tools and concepts. In 2019, we launched a partnership with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) to sponsor employees interested in pursuing a Master of Science degree focused on digital technology, management and data analytics. Sixteen Chevron employees from Kazakhstan, Nigeria and the U.S. enrolled in fall 2019. MIT faculty works with these employees and Chevron leadership to identify ways that digital technology can help solve challenges facing the energy industry.
We strive to empower people around the world to improve their lives, achieve their aspirations and meet their full potential.
At Chevron, we work to make the world a better place. Our partnerships and investments in health, education and economic development advance progress and strengthen communities.
the path ahead
The countries and territories in which we operate present widely varying challenges and opportunities in meeting our goal: to make human progress a reality for those without access to reliable, affordable and ever-cleaner energy everywhere we work. Partnerships are core to our business and enable us to achieve more together, which is why we work with local stakeholders, governments and NGOs who can bring their expertise to our projects, augment our reach and improve our results. Our commitments to help reduce poverty, drive economic and social opportunity and prepare the workforce of the future drives us to continually improve.
At Chevron, we define the energy challenge in human terms. Modern life depends on reliable, affordable and ever-cleaner energy, and we are doing our part to provide access to people without it today. We work together with governments, communities and business leaders to help the communities we operate in prosper. We are proud of the gains we have made in promoting health, economic development and education around the world.
Building a better world requires promoting the well-being of its people and enhancing their ability to lead meaningful lives. We participate in several programs that improve the health of the communities where we operate.
Our investments in education are long-term and far-reaching, and our support for science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education helps communities prosper and gives everyone partnership in the process. We work to create innovative education programs that position the next generation of problem solvers to tackle the most complex challenges of the future.
Our global social impact initiatives aim to ignite and inspire new possibilities for women, families and communities. By investing in programs that provide support for small businesses and entrepreneurs with financial health training and soft skills training, we are supporting the current and future health and prosperity of the communities where we operate.
