Singapore Maritime Foundation launches workforce transformation guidebook

The guidebook offers a practical approach for companies to redesign maritime roles.

The Singapore Maritime Foundation (SMF) has launched a guidebook that will help companies in the maritime sector embark on job redesign.

The Maritime Workforce Transformation Guidebook collates findings and recommendations from Pacific Carriers Limited (PCL) and Pacific International Lines (PIL).

"Through insights gleaned from extensive interviews with stakeholders at both PCL and PIL, the Guidebook proposes pathways to redesign the job of a technical superintendent from that of a technical problem solver to a people leader and data-driven decision maker," the SMF said.

Vessel operators, on the other hand, can use the guidebook to redesign a job from one that is operational to one that offers strategic value through operational excellence. 

"Maritime companies in Singapore will find the job redesign methodology in the guidebook useful for other roles beyond technical ones. The launch of the guidebook represents a concrete step forward by the maritime sector in Singapore to improve the attractiveness of maritime jobs to the talent pool and to develop a sustainable career development path for these roles," the SMF said.
