health starts with our workforce and the communities where we operate

investing in our workforce and communities to improve health

Chevron is focused on contributing to employee and community health and wellbeing. In partnerships, we bring global experience, leadership and financial resources to assist in addressing the health risks having the greatest potential impact on our colleagues, their families and the communities where we operate. Together we leverage data to inform, educate and advocate for improvements in health.

Partnership is woven into the fabric of our company culture and as a global citizen, we strive to build, nurture and leverage relationships to support optimal health and wellbeing of our workforce, their families and the greater communities where we operate.

workforce wellness is at our core

At Chevron, our wide-ranging workforce wellness programs focus on whole-person health — the body, mind and lifestyle. In our operations, we evaluate work-site conditions and staff behaviors to help allow employees to perform the physical, psychological and cognitive requirements safely. Our programs, like Healthy Heart and Healthy You help many employees learn how diet, exercise, and lifestyle affect their health. Where they are deployed, Chevron’s wellness programs provide resources to address lifestyle risk factors that increase risk of cardiovascular disease - smoking, excessive stress, poor nutrition, overweight/obesity, abnormal cholesterol and triglycerides, elevated blood pressure, diabetes and sleep issues. In alignment with our global HIV/AIDS policy, Chevron provides education, promotes prevention, prohibits discrimination against HIV-positive colleagues, and in some areas of operation greatly impacted by the disease we provide treatment and support for affected employees. We offer access to counseling to address depression, anxiety, and other emotional health and wellbeing concerns and in 2019 we rolled out a targeted and enhanced mental health campaign.

We look at health and wellness not as a series of programs but as an opportunity to address key health challenges for our diverse workforce. We have implemented a systematic method for assessing worksite wellness programs and a structure for engagement and reporting, including our e-magazine “Health Matters”. Our proactive prevention-focused health and wellness programs are integrated with our safety and occupational health programs where possible.

Peer Health Education (PHE) supports Chevron’s health and wellness initiatives by empowering employee volunteers to influence and role-model among their peers. Through the program, more than 440 peer educators have been trained as workforce and community health champions around the world. These employees deliver health support and referrals to their peers through education, programming and activities designed to build capacity and positive behavior change. They also increase health awareness in their communities through planned engagements and event participation.

The Chevron Employee Assistance Program (EAP) and WorkLife Services is a free, confidential consulting service for employees, their family members and retirees worldwide. The EAP team connects beneficiaries to advisors who assist in the resolution of personal and work-related concerns. In 2019, the team launched Let’s Talk, a three-year enterprise wide mental health initiative designed to increase awareness of available services and reduce associated stigmas. Let’s Talk emphasizes the importance of establishing a strong and sustained community of support for employees, encouraging managers to share personal stories with their teams promoting utilization of wellbeing tools and participation of mental health events and programming.

our health strategies extend to communities

Our promotion of prevention, education and treatment extends beyond our businesses. For example, our road safety programs help protect employee, contractor and community health by improving driver decision-making, thereby reducing hazards resulting from unsafe driving conditions. Our strong safety culture is also built on sharing with family, friends and neighbors in the community. We not only practice it, we encourage it.

Chevron’s commitment to partnership and safety in China is visible in Chuandongbei, where we have a 49% nonoperating interest in the project. The team identified road safety as a critical issue for local children. Together with the AIP Foundation, Chevron created the Walk Wise Road Safety program to address the hazards of unsafe driving and poorly maintained roads. Since the initial program sponsorship in 2012, the program has benefited 156,000 students and 300,000 parents, who demonstrated improved knowledge, attitudes and behaviors toward road safety.

healthy communities benefit everyone

We exercise our citizenship by investing in partnerships to combat HIV/AIDS, malaria, tuberculosis, Zika, dengue fever and other infectious diseases in risk-prone locations. Our partnerships with organizations such as The Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria, Pact, and Baylor International Pediatric AIDS Initiative achieve meaningful results globally and locally. One such example is our long-standing support of the Global Fund and their work in Africa and the Pacific Rim fighting HIV/AIDS. In 2018, they directed $2.5 million from recent Chevron funding to provide anti-retroviral therapy to almost 20,000 people and helped prevent mother-to-child transmission of HIV/AIDS. Since 2008 we have contributed over $60 million to the Global Fund, contributing to their success in saving more than 27 million lives.

As a company we look for ways to innovate and continually improve. In 2018 we provided a grant of more than $1 million to the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME) to support their critical work, which helps organizations and health professionals better measure emerging health issues and develop data-driven solutions. IHME data is publicly available and used by policymakers to improve decision making on health strategies. In 2018, we also announced a $1 million grant to Friends of the Global Fight Against AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria to expand its advocacy and education work to grow U.S. support for the Global Fund’s lifesaving work. Our partnership and support of the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) helps them bring together thought leaders and identify solutions to the world’s greatest health challenges impacting us all.
