01 Dec Officers Event In Yangon
On 3 August, we gathered at our “Uniteam Ballroom” in the Yangon office building for our Senior Officers’ get-together.
We had previously always enjoyed hosting a Senior Officer seminar every year, but for the last two years this was not possible due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This year’s event was very special, being the first meeting after the COVID-19 restrictions were lifted. All our senior officers were very happy to finally join us again in this event.
The main purpose of the event was to promote good relationships with each other, enhance the sense of be- longing within the Uniteam Marine community, promote engagement and share updates about Uniteam Marine’s new strategy and business initiatives.
Continuous feedback is very important to us so all of those present were also requested to participate in the Seafarer Crew Management Performance Survey. QR codes were used to link to the anonymous online survey. The survey results enable us to develop and improve our service to seafarers and clients.
Captain Than Oo, opened the event with a warm welcoming speech. Captain Thet Naing then delivered an insightful presentation in respect to the latest salary levels, home allotments and new certification regulations. Mr Ko Ko Lwin concluded the session with a presentation and workshop on new business projects and tonnage. The first session concluded with an opportunity for all participants to socialise and enjoy some light refreshments.
I was pleased to start the second session on the opportunities for development in Uniteam Marine and have an open, constructive discussion with our Senior Officers on the challenges and successes of modern-day shipping.
All participants agreed that this was a successful event, giving everyone the chance to meet again to discuss topical issues and interests. We will continue to host such events bringing seagoing and shore staff together to build stronger working relationships.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank all our participants – Uniteam Senior Officers, guests, office personnel and organisers – for making this long-awaited event successful. Please keep the discussions going until the next occasion. We look forward to the next event.
