We have been able to “localize” the majority of the workforce at many operations

The majority of the workforce at many of our operations is local

Our operations can provide employment and economic development for local communities.

We follow government regulations on local employment and aim to make most use of local people and local businesses.

We establish partnership with different regulatory bodies in order to maximise local employment.

To help local suppliers compete for contracts in our global tendering and contract management process we provide training to help them meet our standards. In Qatar, for example, we signed a partnership agreement with Qatar Development Bank to provide training for suppliers to meet Shell’s standards for goods and services.

We also support local communities in setting up businesses to sell us goods and services.

We have programmes to attract and train local staff in low and medium income countries where we operate.

Some are required by governments but most are voluntary.
