Working at SHV Energy

At SHV Energy, it is our priority to create a working environment where people enjoy working.

We employ more than 16,000 people in over 25 countries across four continents: Europe, Asia and North and South America. This offers an exciting international working platform for both young professionals and experienced managers. The long-term perspective of a multinational, family-owned business creates a unique experience for those who enjoy an entrepreneurial environment.

At SHV Energy you can expect equitable working conditions, relevant training and ongoing development. We have a decentralised culture. We encourage empowerment and open and honest communication between each other.

Furthermore, we look to stimulate local economies by employing predominantly local people. Our people in the field are entrepreneurial and value integrity and loyalty. Their excellence has defined our success in the past as it will in the future.

What I love about working for Pinnacle is the people and the welcoming spirit.

Diversity and inclusion

At SHV Energy we believe that diverse and inclusive teams understand and reflect their customers and stakeholders better, improve performance by increasing analytical and problem-solving capabilities and are more creative and innovative.

It is well documented that companies that embrace diversity and inclusion by stimulating a sense of belonging, allowing all employees to reach their potential, see a positive impact on their bottom line.

Ultimately, we hire and promote based on who the best candidate is for a role. However, it is our topmost priority to pay significant attention to diversity in both hiring and selecting participants for development programmes, to ensure overall inclusion. We make sure that we do not solely promote diversity and inclusion in our workplace but that we demonstrate it. We want to walk the talk.

One of the ways in which we do this, is by committing to at least a third of candidates for each leadership position being female. At a business unit level, for the first time, we have a board that is predominantly female. We are also committed to equal pay for men and women. We guarantee this by regularly analysing the payrolls at both our headquarters and business units to ensure there is no disparity based on gender.

Thanks to my team, I really enjoy my daily work.
