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.

  1. An employee is a 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. These people are not paid directly by Cairn but through their employing organisation. Many 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 through the year. Instead we provide the total number of contractor positions during 2013.
  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.
