Representatives of Northern Marine Manning Services attended the 18th Annual European Manning and Training Conference in Copenhagen at the end of April 2015.
Dhananjay Swadi, Personnel Director and Barrie Finlayson, Fleet Personnel Manager joined professionals from the maritime industry to discuss and share knowledge on current pertinent issues including the younger generation of seafarers, women seafarers and crew supply and demand.
Dhan presented to the audience the NMMS view on the challenges related to the recruitment, retention and motivation of quality seafarers.
This was followed by a lively question and answer session.
Dhan said: “This is the premier event in the European maritime calendar that deals with all issues related to manning and training of seafarers.
“Attendance and presenting at this event allowed NMMS and the Northern Marine Group to share best practices across the industry and to tap into and contribute towards the knowledge base regarding seafarer recruitment and retention in Europe.”
The previous evening Dhan also coordinated a workshop on the best practices in seafarer recruitment and retention.
