We're well into 2013 now, and with the promise of better weather upon us, we're looking forward to the rest of the year with a 'spring' in our step. Geddit?
We have touched this month on the risks in shipping; it's a scary place to be – though not as scary as the Borneo jungle, where one of our staff is trekking this month. As a company, we try to foster a 'family' spirit, supporting staff past and present, and we hope that some of our blogs show this.
Anyone wishing to attend the Maritime HR Forum conference in the UK this year on 6-7 June, we urge you to get in touch now.
And finally, we've taken a look at the tough life of seafarers, which has sparked a lively debate on our LinkedIn group 'Shipping Jobs'. Take a look at the debate – showing good sides and bad – and dive in if you've got something to say!
