Rewards and Benefits
You have your individual priorities, ambitions and aspirations. We value and support that. That's why we'll make every effort to provide the kind of rewards and benefits that will complement your own particular lifestyle and needs.
Financial rewards and benefits programme
Our competitive salaries reflect both the market conditions and the levels of skills and experience we need to remain at the forefront of our industry. Individual contributions are recognised and rewarded through performance-related pay and bonuses. Our Benefits are aligned to local market practice and often include pension/retirement plans and healthcare coverage.
In some locations, we offer subsidised services such as sports facilities, medical and dental care and car parking.
Balancing work and life
We provide flexible working practices wherever necessary and operationally possible. You may be able to ‘telecommute’ and work from home. Some locations and businesses can also offer flexi-time working – enabling you to start your work day earlier or later to fit your needs. Further, to meet the needs of an increasingly virtual environment, you could even work out of your base location in a regional or global role.
Time off and time out
We offer market aligned levels of annual leave entitlements and maternity/paternity leave allowances. We also accommodate career breaks and sabbaticals wherever feasibly possible in countries where it is applicable. In addition, employees are encouraged to step outside of purely work boundaries to participate in other areas of interest such as social responsibility projects as part of Shell Project Better World, employee interest groups or campus recruitment, which offers the chance to meet with university students.
Sports and social activities
Whatever your interests, there’s likely to be a Shell sports and social group that you can get involved with – for example, the Shell Sports Club, Shell Women’s Network, Shell African Network, Shell Disability Network and many more. In some locations around the world, we may offer gym facilities, swimming pools, tennis courts, sailing and scuba diving.
Listening to our employees
We regularly conduct surveys amongst our employees to find out if there are any issues that need to be addressed or improved. This can take the form of online surveys, discussion forums or interactive webcasts. As an example, the Shell People Survey is conducted online on a regular, global basis. This gives everyone a chance to make suggestions on improving our work environment, to input into policies or to address areas of concern.
