The promotion of health and well-being is a priority for Continental Resources. That is evident within the company and in the communities where its employees live and work.
Continental’s annual fundraising campaign allows employees to choose where their money goes, while helping them learn about the organizations working to improve their community.
Community Health Charities has benefitted from Continental’s Giving Campaign since 2015.
“We enjoy working with Community Health Charities because it provides the opportunity for our employees to contribute to causes important to them and support organizations serving people with specific health issues that have impacted their own lives or families,” said Lesley Martin, the company’s senior director of community relations & events. “The ability to tailor their giving to support causes meaningful to them is a large part of why our Giving Campaign continues to grow.”
During the company’s month-long 2018 Giving Campaign, Continental employees raised more than $325,000, marking an increase of more than $60,000 over the previous year and more than $100,000 over 2016.
Department fundraisers – from bake sales, raffles and ice cream socials to email bingo and trivia night – are a popular engagement component of the campaign, bringing in nearly $76,000 in 2018, more than double what they accounted for in 2016.
While Continental devotes an entire month to its Giving Campaign, company employees continue to engage with charities year-round by volunteering, thanking providers and raising money to support specific programs and initiatives.
The company’s focus on building healthy communities extends beyond its annual campaign. Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Harold Hamm, the company’s founder, is a driving force in the quest to find a cure for diabetes. He is devoted to securing a healthy and secure future for all Americans.
Continental takes proactive measures to equip employees and their families with the skills and resources to achieve healthy, active lifestyles. It has been acknowledged as an American Heart Association Fit-Friendly Worksite and a Certified Oklahoma Healthy Business.
