We respect the human rights of our employees by providing them with good and safe working conditions.

We offer competitive terms and conditions of employment and promote the development and best use of individual talents.

Our approach also aims to create an inclusive work environment, in which every employee has an equal opportunity to develop his or her skills and talents.

We work to make sure that we take decisions based on relevant qualifications, merit, performance and other job-related factors. Unlawful discrimination relating to employment is not tolerated.

We encourage the involvement of employees in the planning and direction of their work.

In the event of any harassment or any action, conduct or behavior which is humiliating, intimidating or hostile we offer staff the opportunity to officially report any concerns, for example through the Shell Global Helpline.
