Specialist Training Programmes

your people’s thinking
Our training programmes are centered around the human element and geared towards strengthening your people’s understanding of the principles and the practices that can energize (or hijack) high performance.

For an organisation to shine in the high-complexity environment of the maritime industry, it must be led by people who can apply certain key skills. Inspiring trust, promoting engagement and motivation, aligning differing cultures: in short, understanding how to review and how to best manage performance, starting with one’s own. The training programmes we offer target these exact skills.

In a much-valued cooperation with DNV Maritime Academy, we offer a suite of learning programmes that focus on building your people’s thinking around organisational change. Based on insights from neuroscience, our programmes will transform your team’s understanding about assessing and managing human element performance.

The programmes we offer are held both in-house and at the Academy’s offices around the region. Contact us to tailor a course to your goals or to explore your organisational training needs.

Why employee well-being is a business imperative

An ever-increasing body of scientific research on well-being and happiness prompts businesses worldwide to take employee well-being seriously. These research findings are so strong that public policy goals in a number of countries have been revised to include people’s well-being.

The reason is easy to understand, though somewhat more complicated to deliver: for a business to thrive, you need healthy, happy, fulfilled and motivated employees.

Employee well-being interventions have been linked with:

  • Reduced absenteeism
  • Reduced accidents
  • Increased retention
  • Increased engagement
  • Improved stress management skills and resilience
  • Supportive workplace relationships
  • Increased engagement

Building Mental Health Awareness and Literacy
