By determining the understanding of sustainability issues, the practice of corporate social responsibility and Nigerian Content implementation in the Niger Delta oil and gas equipment and service industry, this dissertation investigates the perception of employees.
To elicit the perception, structured questionnaires and interviews with employees in the equipment and service sector were administered. The analysis, largely statistical, revealed a high level of agreement in perception and understanding of the notions of corporate social responsibility, Nigerian content, sustainable development, corporate responsibility and the emerging trend, corporate sustainability.
Information on actual practices in the oil and gas equipment and service industry in the Niger Delta of Nigeria provides an opportunity that must be harnessed if the much needed development both in human capital and infrastructural sphere is to be achieved.
To this end, oil and gas equipment and service companies should demonstrate active encouragement and support for employee involvement in CSR/NC/CS activities, provide generic CSR/NC/CS training targeted at the employees, implement employee suggestion scheme and include local knowledge in developing CSR/NC/CS strategy as it offers the best value to establish ownership and accountability for effective implementation which would result in sustainable benefits to the organization, the employee and the society.
