  1. An employee is person employed by and on the payroll of Cairn. Persons employed under short-service contracts are included as Cairn employees provided they are paid directly by Cairn. Personnel who are contracted for more than 3 months to an organisational position and who are categorised as ‘other workers’ in the database are not included in the employee numbers for this indicator.

  2. A contractor is someone contracted to work on Company business on a temporary basis in field based positions or a sub-contractor through another company, or someone contracted to work on Company business for less than three months in an office-based position. These people are not paid directly by Cairn but through their employing organisation.

    Field-based contractors: Many field-based contractors work on rotation (back-to-back), e.g. one month on, one month off, so it is not practical or meaningful to give the total number of individuals who have worked as contractors on Cairn projects throughout the year. Instead we provide the total number of contractor positions during 2016.

    Short-term (less than 3 months) office-based contractors: Data on numbers of short-term office contractors was collected for the first time in 2016. It came from three sources:

    1. A list of Dakar office-based contractors who are not included in Cairn’s employee and long-term contractor workforce (individuals who time-write) data was supplied by Cairn’s Human Resources department. This was cross checked against time-sheets supplied by Cairn’s Dakar Office at the end of each month and those individuals who had not already been captured were included in short-term contractor data.
    2. A list of non-time-writing personnel was supplied by Cairn’s finance department at the end of 2016. This list was cross-checked against employee and long-term contractor workforce data, and contractor data from Senegal, to ensure that the personnel were not double-counted.
    3. A schedule of contractor personnel currently working on a major software (Unit4) implementation project at Cairn was supplied at the end of 2016. This was cross checked against the non-time-writing personnel list to ensure there was no duplication.

    Data on numbers of field-based contractors and some short-term office-based contractors are collected and entered into the database each month. At the end of the year, the highest monthly figures are taken from each vessel/rig/base/office and these are added together to give the total number of contractors. Short-term office-based contractor data that are not available monthly are entered into the database at the end of the year and the average monthly figure is used for the number of contractors in this case.

  3. ‘Other workers’ are defined as personnel who are contracted for more than 3 months in an organisational position. They form part of Cairn‘s organisational workforce in the office and are not included in the contractor numbers.

 

Note: Data has been provided for individual countries where there are relevant employees and contractors.

Note: The KPIs regarding national, expatriate and non–national are defined differently for employees and contractors. For employees, the terms are applicable to office staff and are defined in accordance with employment contracts. For contractors, the data is collected for the purpose of measuring Cairn‘s impact on the communities in which we work and the definitions are simply regarding whether a contractor is from the country of operation or not.
