Superintendent Employment Report

Read the Superintendent Employment Report

There has been limited coverage of the wider thoughts and feelings of superintendents. As a business passionate about the maritime sector coupled with our reach of the people working as superintendents, we felt that this year provided a great opportunity to create a unique and extensive global annual survey. We feel it is vital to expose, highlight, and establish a new benchmark across several topics including retention, remuneration, employee benefits, health and wellbeing, employee engagement, travel and the future of the profession.

This is the first survey of its kind in the sector and one we believe will be important for years to come.

This Superintendent Employment Report aims to uncover the good and the bad of the profession, looking at it from an employee's point of view. We wanted to discover where the maritime sector excels, and where it falls short. It covers areas such as:

  • Do employees feel valued?

  • Who will be seeking a new job?

  • Why will employees stay with their employers?

  • Who is receiving pay rises?

  • Is work-life balance or salary more important?

  • What causes the most stress for superintendents?

  • Do leaders need to change their style?

  • What type of employee benefits are superintendents receiving?

These are just a few of the questions that are so unique to superintendents and ones that only they will answer.
