Hess is among the top 25 percent for total giving among 272 companies that participated in the 2016 Giving in Numbers survey, which is considered the leading benchmark on corporate societal investment and employee engagement.
The annual survey, conducted by CECP in association with The Conference Board, gathered data from 272 of the world’s largest companies, in aggregate representing $7.5 trillion in revenue and 17 million employees. It found that among corporate peers, Hess was top quartile when measuring total giving. To be in the top quartile of total giving, companies gave at least $47.9 million in 2015. Median total giving in 2015 among all 272 respondents was $21.1 million.
“The top companies in today’s global economy have infused societal needs with business strategy, binding the well-being of their communities to the health of their bottom line,” said Daryl Brewster, CEO, CECP.
For more than 10 years, Giving in Numbers has been the leading study on the funds, resources and skills that companies invest in globally to solve pressing societal challenges.
