ExxonMobil investing in workforce to grow its business


ExxonMobil PNG (EMPNG) says the company knows the investment it makes in its workforce today is what will sustain and grow its business into the future.
EMPNG, in a statement, said as part of this commitment, and to accelerate development of its national workforce in selected fields, the company introduced the graduate development programme in late 2018 to target graduates with professional backgrounds in accounting, business, law, information technology and science.
The public’s initial response to the programme’s launch was overwhelming, with EMPNG receiving over 1,000 applications for the first cohort,” EMPNG said.
The programme offers a challenging and exciting opportunity to gain valuable insight through working with industry experts and mentorship.
Over the course of three years, graduates were based at the head office in Port Moresby and complete rotations across key business areas such as production, safety, health and environment.
Human resources manager Charveen Sandhu said: “The programme has been highly successful in providing graduates with an understanding of corporate values, with participants of the programme being provided exposure to real work that has contributed to delivering key business results.”
After graduating from Divine World University with a degree in mathematics and computing science, Damaris Wakip joined EMPNG’s IT department working with the digital projects team.
“I have been challenged with situations and made mistakes, but I wouldn’t change any of these as they have all allowed me to continue to learn and develop new skills, both behavioural and functional,” Wakip said.
“I have learnt a lot from the EMPNG graduate development programme.”
The company is currently recruiting for its next intake of graduates.
