On shore

Many of our people may not work at sea, but they need to know how ships work. For that reason, Aegean Shipping Management ensures that its shore-based personnel are as comfortable and familiar on board as on land.

Recruits must have the appropriate university education for the designated position. But having degrees is not enough. New hires or transferred our people should familiarize themselves in their new positions before assuming their duties. This allows them to become aware of the relevance and importance of their activities and how these contribute to the achievement of company’s objectives.

To promote continuity, the emphasis should be on retaining staff in the positions where they do best and developing their skills. Our appraisal system rewards our people that perform well by promoting them and offering follow-up training.
