Facing the new HR value streams in the maritime industry

  • Copenhagen Denmark (map)

At every scale of HRM: from how we recruit, how we work, engage and collaborate, to how we build talent, form teams and involve the best competences, maritime companies are considering how to build the strongest organization possible.

However, some of the more recent challenges of the industry and requirements for even more flexibility makes it important for us to reemphasize and optimize our HRM practices.

The maritime industry asks for new, innovative playgrounds, for new ways of attracting skilled and flexible both men and women, and for ways to deliver business goals in sustainable value streams and relations.  

At this event, we will explore both academic theories and hard-core facts and numbers presented in a line of inspirational talks and interactions from a Ph.D., a maritime HR responsible, a related industry partner, and a digital developer.

We hope that the afternoon will bring new perspectives and insights, which can help us all transform the maritime labour market from being a rather internal and hierarchical labour market to a more externally oriented and open labour market with possibilities for new career paths, other views of talent and more ways to build competencies.

Will new digital HR platforms and automation change the way we find talent, set teams and exchange and in what areas will we encounter the most significant changes - tomorrow and in ten years?
