It is our social responsibility to meet the needs of the communities in which we operate and live. We want to enhance the quality of life and do our part to make our communities healthy, safe and eminently livable. We believe one of the best ways to make an impact is through volunteering in our communities.
In 2018, more than 700 Whiting employees volunteered over 5,500 hours in local communities throughout our operating areas.
At Whiting, we encourage and recognize employee volunteerism in multiple ways:
- Each employee receives 16 volunteer hours of paid time annually to volunteer at the non-profit of their choice during work hours. They can do events organized by their office or volunteer at an organization of their choice.
- Community Relations representatives work to create volunteer opportunities for employees or connect them with volunteer opportunities hosted by Whiting’s community partners.
- Employees leverage our internal communications platform to find volunteer opportunities, sign up to volunteer and share local opportunities by posting event details.
- Beyond volunteering for accredited non-profits, Whiting employees are encouraged to support their local communities through involvement in their municipalities, school systems and sports programs.
