Crew welfareness at a glance
Seafarers welfare is becoming a major issue for the international maritime community. Workplace wellbeing can be synonym to psychological contentment and happiness at work.
The ship is a working and simultaneously a living environment, thus making seafaring a profession with particular patterns and needs. The provision of welfare practices and solutions on board, aims at balancing effectively the work responsibilities and interests that seafares have outside work, such as reading ‘’News from home’’. For that purpose, Goldenport and Oceangold chose for their seafares the Evo RSS News by Marpoint.
