HR & Crew Management Forum

Development, recruitment, leadership, retention, motivation, compensation. Central to any workplace is the people. With MDC focusing on people/HR/human resources/employees, we bring up relevant topics for the modern maritime industry - ashore or onboard. Our industry is characterised by being truly international – exposed to global competition in a cyclical economy.

This brings along a series of challenges hugely relevant to our industry. Challenges which will be taken up by the HR group in order to make people and companies in the maritime industry more robust.

We are looking forward to presenting you with a long list of exciting speakers, valuable insight, and inspiration in order to make HR contribute to the bottom line.

In collaboration with the Steering Committee, MDC will arrange approx. 4 meetings per year, mainly conducted in English.


Themes of the 2017 season will be both hard and soft aspects of HR in the maritime industry:

Focus will be on how to accommodate future demands for competences (and shortages of the same) – and how to develop and recruit them!
