As the shipping organizations are rapidly changing, struggling to attract new talents and have a modern working environment, there is an urgent need for soft skills development. Shipping needs to adopt new methods and techniques on how to improve those abilities, speakers of panel 3 at the last SAFETY4SEA Virtual Forum highlighted.
During the 2020 SAFETY4SEA London Forum, Natalie Shaw, Director Employment Affairs, ICS, opened the second panel discussing age discrimination, which is a potential form of unfair treatment at work, given that the age gap between employees in the workplace can now be as much as 50 years.
In our special column this time, we are pleased to host an interview with Capt. Hari Subramaniam, Regional Head – Business Relations, Shipowners Club, who explains us that he was somehow destined for a career in the shipping industry and the best decision he ever made was to sail on different types of vessels.
Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is defined as the process for organizations to integrate social, environmental, ethical and human rights concerns into their operations and core strategy, in close collaboration with their stakeholders. In this context, SAFETY4SEA’s annual survey aims to assess the CSR performance of the maritime industry by examining 10 factors according to ISO 26000 requirements and CSR strategy of EU.
During the 2019 SAFETY4SEA London Conference, Mr. Dustin Eno, COO, Navigate Response, noted that the shipping industry is more visible now than at any time in history; from AIS vessel tracking, to seafarer social media activity, people can see the industry like never before. Information is now more available to outside watchers than before.
SAFETY4SEA’s annual survey, the so called ’’Shipping CSR500 Survey’’ highlights once again the many benefits that CSR practices offer to the industry’s organizations which realize their responsibility as part of the society and their contribution to the environmental sustainability in order to move forward.
