In havyard we are also going to “be all ears and have the biggest heart within the industry”. By this statement we communicate that we have to listen to our customers and stakeholders in order to continuously improve. If we do make a mistake, we will admit to that and then

carry out improvements and be generous if there are claims for compensation. We must not forget, in a hectic and demanding environment, that there are both threats and opportunities in every situation, and maybe we should become better at seeing opportunities in a difficult market and not least see potential threats within a good market too. With these words I wish all of our employees, stakeholders, customers and suppliers good luck, and I am looking forward to a successful cooperation where the aim is to make each other good.

-Through Havyard`s introduction programme I have received a much greater understanding and a better overview of both the company and the possibilities within the maritime industry.

It is difficult to get an understanding of a company only from the outside, since they offer so many different jobs, says the 22-year-old.

Sara Storøy (22) - there are mainly two reasons as to why we focus on this programme, says Bente Nesse, hr-director of havyard Group. – one of the reasons is that we wish to present to youth all the possibilities that they have within the maritime industry. even if the youngsters may have grown up in the local area, the various possibilities within this industry are still a bit unfamiliar to many of them. the other reason is that we are working on a long-term recruitment plan and it is possible we may recruit some of these participants for future work at havyard, says Nesse.

She informs us that the main reason for wanting to be part of the programme, is that she wishes to discover what type of work and professional positions that havyard can offer. Sara studies law and wants to do a Master degree, ideally some sort of maritime course. - I hope to find out whether this is something for me.
