Shell is proud to announce that for the third consecutive year we have been named in The Times Top 50 (TT50) Employers for Women.
Each year The Times, in partnership with Business in the Community, the Prince’s Responsible Business Network, publishes its unranked list of companies that are actively creating cultural change for women at work. Competition to be placed is hard-won and once again, Shell features.
A commitment to gender equality
To be included on the list, organisations must show a commitment to changing perceptions, processes and culture related to gender equality. Shell prides itself on setting the bar high.
Maggie van T’Hoff, President of Balance at Shell, (Previously Shell Women’s Network) said ”I am very proud of the achievements of Shell UK, named again as the Times Top 50 Employer for Women. This is due to a lot of hard work, supported by leaders, HR and Balance at Shell. It is fantastic to be recognised for this work. Balanced teams translate to real business value.”
Diversity and inclusion is a central part of the organisation at all levels, from entry-level employees to senior management. Creating better development opportunities and a positive work environment for women is a core part of this.
In fact, we treat our diversity targets in the same way we do our business goals, for example by including them in our leadership and line manager training programmes and in annual appraisals. As part of this year’s Diversity and Inclusion week, leaders were made responsible for raising the themes of inclusion and gender equality with their teams.
