Last week’s HR session at the Maritime CEO Forum confounded many who fear where the next generation might come from to fill the gap in shipping’s workforce.
Watch below as two well known names in local Hong Kong shipping circles – Bjørn Højgaard, CEO, Anglo-Eastern and PB Subbiah, HR director at Pacific Basin – discuss how to go about making a career in shipping an attractive option both at sea and onshore.
“From a shore-based perspective it depends on how you promote your brand and market how people can work for you. Get that right and it is not a problem. We don’t experience a shortage or a lack of enthusiasm,” Subbiah told the exclusive shipowner gathering.
A full report from the session will feature in Maritime CEO magazine. The next forum takes place at the Fullerton Hotel in Singapore on March 17 next year.
The Maritime CEO Forum in Hong Kong was sponsored by American Express, Anglo-Eastern, Cobham, Dualog, Liberian Registry, Lloyd’s Register and Marlink.
