British Gas reward boss goes east

British Gas’ head of reward for residential energy, Paul Simons, is moving to Standard Chartered Bank, where he will oversee reward for South East Asia.

This is a return to international benefits for Simons, who worked as reward manager for Diageo in West Africa in 2004. "I am a big fan of the bank’s work in HR and staff engagement, and the linkages between that and performance," he said. Centrica-owned British Gas is understood to be recruiting a replacement.
