Oftentimes seafarers work with temporary contracts, which means that skilled crewmembers may come and go, and stability or loyalty is not easily found.

At ÈTA People we strongly believe in the retention of skilled crewmembers, simply by focusing on the basic principles of being fair, keeping promises and offering them a good future. If it comes to retention, it is not only salary that matters. We believe that commitment should come from both parties, which is why we are heavily invested in training our crew and providing them with strong opportunities for career development. Having a high retention rate results in having a valuable system to fill vacancies through promotion, rather than recruiting external candidates.
