Europort Event: Energy for onboarding the young

We are honored to host an interactive session during Europort together with Young RMSC. On Friday the 10th of November, we organize a lively interactive panel that will discuss the management styles between generations, featuring insights from a psychologist and established and emerging leaders. The panel discussion will take place at the Green Stage from 14:00 – 15:00.ProgramThe event will provide valuable insights into how companies can bridge the perceived generation gap in the workplace. Earlier this year the Young Maritime Board and Erasmus UPT conducted a study into the needs and motives of young maritime professionals active in the Rotterdam region, leading to unprecedented insights. For example, the results showed that 51% of young professionals are contemplating to jump ship towards other industries. Alarming signals calling for action if companies want to keep young professionals onboard.  For whom?We invite all young professionals to join us and dive into the captivating debate on "Management Styles Between Generations". DetailsWhen: 10/11/2023 from 14:00 – 15:00Where: Europort Rotterdam – Ahoy – Green StageRegistration: YoungShip Rotterdam and Young RMSC Europort Seminar - Rotterdam Maritime Services Community
