The Maritime Manager of the Future - Retention & Recruitment

  • Copenhagen Business School 22 Porcelænshaven Frederiksberg, 2000 Denmark (map)

Attracting and retaining the best talent is more difficult than ever. The unemployment is currently lower than we have seen in many years and the labour market is very tight. The “war for talent” is on in the maritime industry which doesn't reside first in in the mind of the candidate. Hence, employee branding is essential. You need to target the right candidates and make sure that your employee value proposition meets the needs of the future employees. So, with that said what is employer branding and how can we use it? How does a workplace brand itself, and how do you retain and recruit people to an industry that is rather unknown to common man?  

At the seminar, we look into how headhunters recruit candidates to "unknown" industries/businesses and give you specific initiatives and examples of what works and what doesn't.
