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. In connection with this, we solicit to your assistance once 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 and we seek your input no later than 29 May 2007.


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


Thank you for your valuable assistance.
