A facility made up of trailers in Robert, Louisiana, served as temporary office space for displaced Shell employees after Hurricane Katrina.

One of the major challenges facing companies in the New Orleans area is finding places for employees to live. Some have set up trailers on their property. Yesterday the New York Times carried this story about how Shell addressed this challenge. They invested more than $30 million in purchasing property that could be used by employees.
