Officer Retention - Survey Request

Just one of the initial areas of focus by The Human Element in Shipping Committee (HEiSC) relates to manning levels and cadet and officer availability. As members will be aware we have recently undertaken a cadet availability/berth survey of our members, and we have been in further contact with some members requesting additional feedback.


However, as members will also be aware, officer retention is beginning to become an area of focus and in this regard we need to solicit to your assistance again, to help us to help you.


We are requesting members to complete the following very brief Officer Retention Survey to try and determine the five most common reasons given when an officer leaves a company. The survey will be confidential to the person and company submitting the report.


The very short survey form may be accessed here. We urge you to complete this and return it to


Thank you for your valuable assistance
