Recruitment, retention and development of excellent staff is considered one of the main elements of our sustainability strategy and corporate business plan. We continue to intensify the development and implementation of initiatives and tools to source the right talent from the international labor market as well as to monitor, develop and steer internal talent and improve internal mobility. We continuously refresh and optimize our HR-processes around performance management, leadership- and talent development, knowledge sharing and employee engagement.
Retaining talented individuals within Boskalis is just as important as attracting them. We undertake a number of initiatives designed to engage our staff, ranging from enhancing our crew training to running successful programs such as the Boskalis Leadership Development Program, the Financial Professional Program and our Innovation Wave Jump Program.
Supporting the continued employability of our employees is an important issue for our business and our employees. We do so by helping to enhance staff skills for the future and by looking at ways to keep people healthy, safe and motivated through to their retirement. We aim to create an environment in which people stay committed and connected.
