OSLO: The Norwegian maritime industry plays a vital role in the country’s economy, but attracting top talent is a constant challenge. The WW group supports Oslo’s Ocean Talent Camp, which aims to inspire teenagers to consider a career in the maritime industry. Contestants were challenged to build a ro-ro vessel using only two balloons, tinfoil, straws and tape. The best entrants won a rib-ride on the Oslofjord.
New career portal to
facilitate intragroup movement
EMPLOYEES NOW have access to a new shared career portal to discover job vacancies across the world’s largest maritime network. The result of a joint project between WW group and main partners, the project reflects the desire to retain and develop competence while offering employees more opportunities within the wider group. Using the portal, current employees can easily access and apply for vacant positions at any of the participating group companies. The portal, which is accessible from each company’s intranet, also contains useful information on relevant HR policies when moving between group companies.
