Shell for 'Workplace Accessibility'
Going beyond simple compliance with legal requirements such as the Rights of People with Disabilities Act 2016, and as part of a global initiative, Shell has collaborated across multiple functions, including IT, Real Estate, Health, Human Resources, Finance, and Procurement, to create a unified Workplace Accessibility Service for employees. This is designed to streamline and mainstream the support provided to employees that need workplace adjustments and includes a catalogue of services and equipment available to employees. Shell has also set up a central Accessibility Centre with advisors who manage employee requests and provide advice on more specialised needs. This approach sends a powerful message to employees that the company respects the needs of all employees and is committed to creating an inclusive environment that enables them to do their best work.
