Shell employees: American vs European pay

Shell should learn from the Asian and put them in key positions but instead they are sending more Americans and European to Asia.

So much about American vs European pay, how about their capability and competency in this challenging World. It is outdated model. It is also a case of a Pot calling a Kettle black. The Asian’s pay are 30-50% lower or even more but working twice as hard. Look at both the Top and Middle level management in the last 1 year, who has delivered more businesses. Shell should learn from the Asian and put them in key positions but instead they are sending more Americans and European to Asia. It only increases the cost and reduces productivity. So much about diversity, why not include an Asian in the EC to start with. Time to wake up. Vision 2010.

American expats are indeed about twice as expensive as European expats due to the US taxation scheme on worldwide income. Likewise both are more expensive than any local staff equivalent (not just in Asia). I do however disagree that Asian’s (in Shell) work twice as hard on a direct comparison with the expat in a similar position. I never experienced this when working in Asia for Shell.
