‘Shell Energy has a Flex working approach, we are treated as adults, to get on with our work, collaborate and deliver. ’
‘Flexible working is open to most people and is pretty accommodating’
‘Not taken advance, but lots of people have and it seems great’
6 months full pay maternity leave
Hols are statutory, pension standard and limited bonus Great discounts and benefits online
On the whole, benefits at Shell Energy are poor when compared with other companies of the same standing. There has been an attempt to pad out the package (trim trail on site, free fruit one day in the office, shopping discounts) but these are nominal benefits. Pension contribution is poor and limited to 5% of qualifying earnings. Bonus is entirely based on business performance (rather than personal performance) so there's no financial incentive to go the extra mile and over achieve your objectives. No car allowance, dental insurance or share scheme. Bizarrely we don't have staff benefits for things like home energy or electric vehicles. Positives - ability to purchase additional leave, discounted broadband, six months full maternity pay.
Bike to work scheme available
Bupa Cashplan has been useful to reimburse some of my dental and eye care costs
Ease of access to benefits
Benefits package has moved on in recent years, but still some way to go
Health insurance is good and stable. Plus more benefits
Benefits are a bit hit & miss. Access to a 24/7 external support lines for wellbeing and mental health advise and also can opt into a Bupa Scheme. However, employees who have children have access to more flexible working approaches and allowances, such as extra paid leave during 2020/21 which was introduced as a result of Covid. There is a lack of representation of Leaders who do not have children or are the voice of those without which creates unconscious bias behaviours. (there seems to be the assumption that those without children have more free time, can work longer hours and cant be suffering with the pandemic as much as those with children; lack of HR direction 'Speak to your manager' responses). Pension contributions are low for the size of the company compared to other employers in the same industry. Recently a length of service benefit was introduced, 1 extra days leave if you've been at the company over 2 years. Nice gesture, but as a large proportion of the company are 6 years+ it would of been nice to have a rolling allowance. My previous employer awarded an extra year every 2 years up to 5. New bonus scheme pending, announced over 18 months ago with no follow up or clarity of whos eligable and what entitlement will be.
Staff discounts, subsidised canteen on site, generous holiday, decent remuneration
