Shell Connect Workplace Standards
In support of our aim to make Shell a great place to work, the Shell Connect Workplace Standards which are guidelines and design principles for workplace planning and design, are implemented in Shell offices. The programme brings Shell’s vision for our workplaces to life - linking people, place and technology to create a vibrant, energetic, engaging and productive working environment.
There are spaces to foster innovation, knowledge sharing and communication from collaborative and informal workspaces to quiet environments to re-energise such as the energy hubs, meditation rooms, yoga and recreational area. Flexibility is key in our offices. There is a variety of spaces to meet your daily needs, thus providing a workplace that meets the changing needs of our employees and creating a great place to work.
A healthy environment
Shell has a ‘Be Well at Shell’ program designed to raise employee awareness on the importance of understanding health risks and the impact they have on our lives. The program helps employees to optimise their health and supports healthy choices and behaviour change through information, health programmes and on-line tools to enable them to be at their best.
Employees can use the online health tool to produce a personalised health report and health score; view health information and link back into the Shell intranet to see the health programmes available in their work location.
By taking an active role in managing our health, we can lower our health risks and improve our chances of preventing chronic disease. The Be Well at Shell, Prevention program, is designed to provide employees with the support to help them better understand their health and the steps they can take so they can be there today and tomorrow.
