Shell Job Cuts Update 9 Sept 2009

At the end of July 2009 Shell CEO Peter Voser (above) said:

A new restructuring programme – called ‘Transition 2009’ – which we announced in June, will be completed by the end of this year. This will simplify Shell, and increase personal accountabilities. The top 600 management positions in the new organisation have been announced. This has enabled us to reduce the number of senior management positions by 20%, and substantial further staff reductions are likely.

From confidential information provided by Shell insider sources, we have already published over 450 of the top management appointments, citing names and job titles.

Oil giant Royal Dutch Shell is on the verge of carrying through with a large number of previously announced job cuts and reassignments, according to an employee e-mail sent by CEO Peter Voser.

The ranks of Shell’s upper-level management were cut by about 20 percent, from 750 to 600 people.

August was spent “re-designing” departments and groups within the company, according to the Aug. 31 memo.

Voser said the company will fill positions in the new organization during October and November.

Shell previously said its reorganization would affect about 24,000 of its 102,000 workers, though not necessarily with job cuts in all cases. The company employs nearly 13,000 people in the Houston area. read more
