Fjord1 is a competence-driven workplace, both on shore and aboard its vessels, and has a wide range of employment categories. Both the requirements in the new ferry contracts and the pace of technological development require measures and programmes to develop the organisation and strengthen its competence accordingly.

Fjord1 is constantly searching the labour market for new employees with the right competence, particularly for administrative positions in the fields of technology, innovation and the environment. However, it is equally important to focus on developing the existing workforce and furnishing employees with new competence.

Fjord1 follows the principle “attract – retain – develop”, and constantly focuses on how its staff can become even better. An important point here is to facilitate and encourage internal recruitment across the company.

Management and employee development

The company has worked systematically over time to develop managers and employees at all levels in the organisation. In 2020, Fjord1 embarked on a new round of its leadership development programme for all managers in administrative positions.

Skills development

Fjord1 wants to ensure that its employees have the necessary experience and expertise to carry out their work. Changed framework conditions, the Green Shift and new technology require action to boost skills and develop the organisation in line with new requirements, both for the company as a whole and its employees.
