Today, we've reached another big milestone along the road to reinventing bp as we appoint people into the next layer of the company. I'm excited to welcome these tier 3 leaders into their new positions and look forward to working with them to deliver on our purpose, ambition, aims – as well as our new strategy.
I have every confidence in the leaders we're announcing today. Not only do they have the necessary experience and expertise, but – importantly – also the right leadership qualities.
I encourage you all to take a look at onebp (bp’s intranet site) and see how this is all taking shape.
Of course, most of our roles exist in tiers 4 and beyond – and we're nearly there on signing off the design. The selection process starts tomorrow and runs through to November.
A short video tries to answer some of the questions you have been asking. But I am sure you will have more and, as always, please don't hesitate to speak with your team leader or someone from people & culture.
As exciting as all this change is and all the opportunities that come with it, I also realize that there is a great deal of anxiety around bp. Not just to do with the reinvent process, but also COVID-19, workloads, the share price and other uncertainties.
I recognize there is only so much I can say to make those concerns go away. But I can assure you that we are working through this as quickly – and as thoughtfully – as we can, with the goal of providing clarity soon and standing up the new organization on 1 January.
We have our purpose, our ambition, our strategy, and a compelling shareholder proposition. I am confident that together we can deliver – and that is what we now focus on.
Thank you for your commitment to our company – and I look forward to providing further updates on our progress.
With much thanks
