about this item

Each industry faces unique human resource management challenges and opportunities and in shipping these include a global labour market and global unionism, long periods spent at sea, and health and safety issues resulting from a variety of risks. This book explores all the key aspects of human resource management in the shipping industry and how they specifically relate to the shipping workforce. The book also discusses the practices and issues associated with recruitment, training and development, and retention of personnel and knowledge in the shipping industry. In addition, the book addresses the human resource management challenges faced by the industry, including achieving work–life balance, maintaining employee health and wellbeing, managing risk and crisis, and applying knowledge management principles.

With case studies in chapters exploring how the principles have been put into practice in the real world and discussion questions to prompt further enquiry, this book will be of great interest to students and academics of maritime studies and human resource management more broadly as well as professionals in the shipping industry.
