[[http://www.marksimonson.com/fonts/view/proxima-nova|Proxima Nova]]. (It alays helps in these cases to link to the website the image is from, it's definitely a common enough font to figure out anyway, but a wefont takes less than a second to figure out with the [[http://chengyinliu.com/whatfont.html|WhatFont]] plugin.)

If you are interested in contemporary alternatives to Helvetica and Univers, there are quite a few “Swiss” grotesques shown in Jan Middendorp’s Type Navigator, a survey/specimen of independent foundry work.

IIRC Stephen Coles prepared a number of “alternatives to” lists for FontShop, including one for Helvetica:
