Nexen Petroleum achieves 85% take-up of employee discount scheme

EXCLUSIVE: Nexen Petroleum has seen 85% of employees register for its employee discount scheme since it was launched at the end of January.

At the end of the first week, 59% of the oil and gas company’s staff were registered for the scheme. That figure had risen to 85% by mid-March.

The scheme, which is provided by Next Jump, was introduced after it was suggested by members of Nexen Petroleum’s employee forum.

Pamela Gotts, HR graduate for compensation and benefits at Nexen Petroleum, said: “A few employees had worked at organisations where employee discounts schemes were rolled out and they wondered if Nexen could do the same.”

The scheme was communicated through teaser emails, posters and handouts around the office, and webinars. Two weeks before its launch, staff received an email with details of the live date and instructions on how to log-in.
