We are delighted to announce a new Quaynote conference, Improving Crew Retention – Pensions, Benefits, Training & MLC under the spotlight – planned for Thursday, 12th March, 2020 in Antibes.
With MLC legislation placing increased obligations on employers and the need for skilled, professional crew becoming more recognised, Improving Crew Retention will focus on retaining the best yacht crew through first-class benefits and pension provision, MLC compliance and training.
Targeting captains, yacht managers, crew, yacht managers, lawyers, corporate service providers, family offices, payroll companies, insurance brokers, tax advisors, relocation companies, training companies, Improving Crew Retention will provide an essential guide for anyone affected by crew retention or legislative compliance.
Key issues to be covered at Improving Crew Retention include:
- How can we attract and retain the best people to the industry?
- What role does training play in crew retention and where does current training fall short?
- What crew pensions and other benefits are currently available?
- How do the rules governing pension provision vary between jurisdictions?
- Recruitment companies discuss salary, benefits and other incentives such as apartments provided.
- What social security and benefits must be offered to crew by the employer in order to comply with MLC legislation?
- Using IT to administer the range of benefits that employers will increasingly have to offer Captains and Crew
Sponsored by WYCC, first provider of a retirement and benefits plan compliant with legislation, Improving Crew Retention will take place in Antibes, a major hub for superyacht captains and crew, offering participants a tailored platform updating their knowledge, networking and business development.
