Shell Business Operations Krakow – a centre supporting operations of one of the largest companies in the world, will move to the brand new office complex DOT Office at Czerwone Maki Street in Krakow. Moving to the new office will start at the beginning of 2016.
New offices will have the surface area of 22 thousand square meters in three buildings and additional space in the fourth one. Shell Business Operations team will be working in the new office, with higher standards and a number of facilities such as car park, bike path, public transport. It was important for Shell that the buildings are “green” and user-friendly, designed accordingly to the newest trends in sustainable construction.
- We’ve started to look for options that would best suit our needs and secure best EVP for our employees. We’ve been looking for a place that would fit into the framework of a Great Place to Work. We believe that DOT Office satisfies our expectations best– says Agata Hinc, spokesperson of Shell Poland.
