Oil and gas company Shell gives most of its approximately 82,000 employees a bonus of 8 percent of their annual salary.
Shell wants to let employees share in the success of the company. This explicitly concerns employees who do not hold top positions.
Last week it was announced that the company posted a net profit of 17.6 billion euros in the second quarter. That is more than twice as much as the profit in the first quarter.
Shell benefited, among other things, from the high prices for fuel at the pump. These are partly the result of the war in Ukraine.
