Awarding those maritime companies which are clearly focused on promoting young professionals  

Question Title

Thank you in advance for participating in our survey. Your feedback is important.

The work of YoungShip is 100% dependent on the strong support from the maritime companies. Through the past years, we have seen that the focus on the young employees is growing within all parts of the industry, due to the extensive need for recruiting highly skilled and competent staff as a vast number of maritime employees are close to retirement age.

If our industry is to stay ahead in the global competition and solve tomorrow´s challenges, we are fully dependent on attracting the brightest brains, the hard working and outside-the-box staff, and manage to compete with several other main industries about critical competence. We also need to become more visible and promote the exciting and global aspects few other industries can show for. This is an important job for the industry as a whole, yet cannot succeed unless individual companies show their investments and dedication in the next generation employees.

To promote the companies that go the extra mile in their efforts on focusing on and promoting young professionals in the maritime industry. This will be awarded to a company within the international maritime industry, which has excelled at one or more of the following criteria;

- Promoting its young leaders, both within the company and  externally
- Driving forward its young talents
- Devoting time and resources on building the competence of young people in their organisation
- Investing in trainee programs and other competence enhancing  programs
- Supporting initiatives within the maritime community that are promoting young people
