2018 has been a good year so far for a lack of job cuts at Royal Dutch Shell PLC. This is the first post on the new thread and at the time of writing we're almost in May. As new reports happen, comments will be added to the thread below, so depending when you're reading this, you might need to scroll a little, or a lot...
Here's a brief rundown of the job cut news that happened in 2017 at Shell:
- 4th April 2017: "Royal Dutch Shell plc has confirmed that more than 200 workers will be cut from its Norwegian" operations. (Rigzone)
- 31st July 2017: "Plans to cut more than 400 jobs in the Netherlands." (Reuters)
- 1st August 2017: "“50% of VPs would have to leave, and GM level even more.” (Comment from a Shell Blog contributor responding to the 88 page leaked document.)
- 12th October 2017: "Shell is closing its global headquarters for technology and research in Rijswijk and moving 2,000 workers to Shell operations in The Hague and Amsterdam." (DutchNews.nl)(Any job losses resulting to this were included in previous announcements.)
So, 2017 and the first part of 2018 have been good from the point of view of job cuts, in comparison to the downturn in 2015/16.
