Healthy People in Healthy Workplaces

 We take great care in ensuring that our people have many opportunities to improve their health and wellness. Canadian Natural launched “Strive” – an Employee Wellness Program, in 2012. To date, the program has been made available to over 6,200 Canadian Natural employees. Participation in Strive generates financial rewards that can be used to pay for (1) healthcare or (2) wellness expenses not fully covered by the Canadian Natural benefits plan.

Canadian Natural’s wellness program is based on a long-term vision and focus on:
• helping employees identify health risks;
• raising awareness around behavioral changes to improve health; and
• promoting activities and initiatives that will have a positive impact on increasing healthy lifestyle behaviors.

Strive was introduced at CNR International in October 2013, making it available to people in the United Kingdom and Africa. Ongoing implementation is planned for 2014.

Each year, Benefits Canada (the country’s most influential pension and benefits publication) recognizes Canadian companies that have shown innovation and leadership – and have made a real difference in the pension and benefits industry. In 2013, Canadian Natural was nominated as a top three finalist for the Strategic Partnership Award. Benefits Canada receives hundreds of nominations for these awards and it was a great acknowledgement of the work that Canadian Natural and its partners are achieving through the program.
