Royal Dutch Shell employed an average of 92,000 workers in more than 70 countries during 2016, the company revealed in its 2016 sustainability report released Wednesday.
The company also stated that it recruited “around 800 graduates, 800 experienced professionals and 2,800 people” in its Shell Business Operations last year.
Close to 40 percent of graduate recruits came from universities outside of Europe and the Americas and around 40 percent of the firm’s total workforce is located in countries outside of Europe and North America, Shell highlighted in its latest report.
The company also confirmed that three quarters of BG employees successfully transferred to Shell following Shell’s acquisition of the company.
“Shell aims to manage the impacts of business changes on people respectfully and as consistently as possible,” a company spokesperson said in Shell’s sustainability report.
“We work to maintain an effective and healthy organization, resource talented people across the business, accelerate development of our people, grow and strengthen our leadership capabilities, and enhance employee performance through strong engagement,” the spokesperson added.
