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.
"Digitalisation & the Future Manager" will be the overall theme of the 2017 season, with the following sub-titles:
- Retention & Recruitment (May)
- Management & Development of Managers
- Work Global & Culture
- The Modern Seafarer (November)

Do you ever think that your company is honoring its employees more than necessary? In order to attract the best people for the maritime business – and to stay competitive – we first and foremost want this seminar to create awareness about Compensation & benefits.
