Royal Dutch Shell will not raise salaries for most of its employees this year, according to people with knowledge of the matter, as it looks to save cash amid an overhaul of the company. In a note to staff, Chief Executive Officer Ben van Beurden wrote that while the company had previously told employees to have low expectations for salary increases, most wouldn't get a salary increase this year. Shell is starting one of the biggest reorganizations in its history as it pivots from a century-long structure that prioritized oil and gas production. There will be as many as 9,000 job losses over the next two years, with cuts already announced in The Netherlands, the UK and Malaysia. A second round of voluntary redundancies is also underway, Van Beurden said last week.
