Well-being and good job satisfaction in ESVAGT

Press release   •   Mar 17, 2014 22:06 CET

The ’Engagement Survey 2013’ demonstrates good job satisfaction and well-being.

Every year ESVAGT conducts an analysis of staff job satisfaction both to demonstrate where there is room for improvements and where things work really well.

The objective is to ensure that ESVAGT is and will continue to be a good working place; and the engagement survey, as is the name of this job analysis, from this year shows that we are still on the right course.

The shipping company has scored very high over the past four years on:

1. Job satisfaction in the company.

2. Well-being with the Chief Executive/ Management.

This year the results show a notably lower staff turnover than we used to have, and last year it was even under the market average of approx. 10% - ESVAGT has a staff turnover of 8%.

In 2014, our management has identified four main points to focus on in order to continue the positive trend:

1. Improved cooperation – onshore/offshore and internally in the onshore departments.

2. Improved introduction of new staff to ensure better compliance with ESVAGT’s values, attitudes and safety procedures.

3. Strengthening of the internal communication.

4. Continued arrangement of seminars for various groups of employees. Every group of employees must have had the opportunity of participating at least every third year.

These items will be included in the upcoming seminars that are to be conducted in 2014 and will be followed up by more initiatives around the introduction activities of new staff. Another element is the internal ship master training that is being developed.
