We employ more than 13,000 people across the Group’s production, exploration, research, development, design, logistics and management activities. Most of those involved in extraction and exploration work on a fly-in-fly-out basis, due to the demanding nature of the work and the remote locations of many sites.
We believe that workforce diversity is a strength and we are deeply committed to equal opportunities and terms of employment. We actively recruit people on merit, eliminating any discrimination on the grounds of race, skin colour, gender, religion, political opinions, nationality or social origin. In 2021, we approved a five-year Diversity and Inclusion Programme to eliminate workplace bias, empower diverse teams and attract and retain people with different backgrounds. The programme sets gender diversity targets for our existing talent development programmes and introduces new initiatives to inspire women into leadership roles. Besides managing gender diversity issues, we have planned for a set of measures to eliminate discrimination based on age and disability.
