Baker Hughes encourages community advancement in ways beyond the economic impact of our business. Through collaboration with leaders in the community - as well as governments, non-governmental organizations, academic institutions, customers, and employees – we identify opportunities to make a valuable difference in the lives of local citizens. Human rights protection is a fundamental responsibility we uphold through our internal policies and practices and externally promote in subject matter forums, many of which we host. We support local achievement through our education programs which are designed to increase the number of qualified graduates in engineering, science and technology. Our worldwide contributions help address a variety of social issues and promote employee participation in community programs.
Baker Hughes strives to make a positive community impact with charitable contributions at corporate, region and geomarket levels, as well as through the Baker Hughes Foundation.
Our support in education helps improve the capabilities and competitiveness of graduating students as they enter the workplace.
We engage stakeholders including governments, customers, suppliers, employees, communities, and nongovernmental organizations on issues material to our investments around the world
