Shell’s ‘corruption czar’

Comment by a former employee of Shell Oil USA

I read your re-posting of RD Shell’s 2007 advert for a ‘corruption czar’ or whatever they were going to call this person. Interesting. It gave me a good chuckle.

This advert is a public (albeit very quiet) admission by RD Shell management that they know they have a very widespread corporate problem with: internal corruption, bribery, fraud, money laundering, ‘accounting irregularities’, extortion, industrial espionage, conspiracy, and all sort and manner of unsavory and illegal conduct.

Where was the follow-up management house cleaning that should have accompanied these ‘cleansing efforts’?? Or did management take this as an opportunity to blame ‘staff’ and engage in large scale removal of those that wouldn’t ‘play ball’ with management??

Does anyone in RD Shell management have a credible answer to those questions, perchance, that they want to share with their staff, the public, and their shareholders, and perhaps law enforcement officials??
