Our Approach

The Human Resource (HR) division units at corporate and subsidiary levels are responsible for policy setting, recruitment and training for the Group. Taking into account international standards where appropriate, our workplace policies and practices are tailored to suit regional and industry needs. All our shore employees are governed by the Employee Handbook which contains applicable workplace policies where each employee receives a copy on their first day on the job. For our seafarers, workplace policies are further enhanced by international regulations, such as the International Labour Organisation (ILO) Maritime Labour Convention (MLC) 2006, which sets minimum requirements for working and living conditions for seafarers, amongst other provisions. This is captured in the Terms and Conditions of Service for Sea Staff where we aim to meet or exceed industry standards in order to remain competitive.
