Automation, Women seafarers, Near future 2019: CREWCONNECT GLOBAL
For over two decades, CrewConnect Global has connected people for the improvement of maritime manning and training.
Back this year is the Awards, nominations closed September 15th, where attendees can join for a day of work interaction and an evening of celebrations.
The CruiseConnect Summit returns to examine manpower solutions required for the cruise industry; for Women in Shipping, empowered to face challenges unique to the industry.
Approach to competency planning for the automated future – By 2030, the maritime world will be digitally-connected, bringing closer integration between people, software and hardware. These transform the way we operate, with overlaps between technologies; combinations of which shake our comfort zones.
Sustainable shipping, the green economy and sustainable crewing – In developing the workplace, how will the roles of crew at different levels be affected by the MEPC 74, the sulphur cap, ballast water treatment and decarbonisation. As shipping embraces and transitions to a greener economy, there will be impact on the workforce, operations and business. We search more about the positive outcomes of changing mindsets, boundaries and conditions.
Evolving role of the human element in shipping – There appear to be a problem of perception of self-value in developing safety behaviours, ownership and leadership (and accountability on board demanding understanding of motivation, culture and cultures). Creating a motivating environment takes more than just throwing money at the problem.
Crew Management – There is shift from commoditisation to individual welfare management.
A well-motivated crew is not just a generic “well-paid”, or “well-trained” crew. It is increasingly important for operators to look at the issue of crew welfare from a holistic viewpoint, adopt a much more individually-focussed welfare management strategy.
The empowerment to action of women in shipping is built around the unique challenges women face; acknowledging the value they provide and taking the next steps like shaping thoughts, empowering leadership, and helping to progress careers.
This helps meet HR challenges of the rapidly evolving cruise industry. This program is the first and only event dedicated to crew recruitment, training and retention for cruise. The summit is designed by senior experts from the largest operators, associations and regulators.
This is an opportunity to recognise and reward excellence within the ranks of an ever-changing industry. The search is deeper in the provision of crew game- changing solution, open to nominate anyone (or self) in a multiple of categories.
