Several seafarers from four different nationalities were invited for the two-day event ‘Breaking Barriers’ to get acquainted with each other and the Wagenborg office staff. Experiences were exchanged and common thoughts were shared. All participants present believed and felt that they are part of the Wagenborg company where everybody is valuable and were very pleased about the way everyone shared their opinion and personal improvement goal. This is the kind of openness we aimed for. It will contribute to a higher engagement within the company.
The open discussion at the Officers Meeting in Moldova resulted in several projects and project groups. All projects are focused on improving our way of working and reducing the communication gap in between the office and the fleet. The next two editions of the Officers Meeting will be held in a similar way in September in the Netherlands and in October in the Philippines.
