Fednav Wins Top Employer Award

Fednav Limited, the largest international maritime bulk carrier in Canada, won the award as one of Montreal’s Top Employers earlier this year and announced that the company has also been recognized by Mediacorp as one of Canada’s Top Employers for Young People for 2014.

Fednav is the first Canadian shipping company to have received this distinction.

With the aim of renewing and growing its talent pool, Fednav is adapting to this generation and immerses the young people it employs—winners of the Fednav scholarship, interns, and summer students—into the technical world of shipping,” the company said.

According to Fednav, their internship includes ship tours, visits to a ship terminal or to an industry partner, and the opportunity to participate in an industry-related project. Recent graduates are also provided with an extensive personalized training program that features temporary assignments in various departments including its overseas offices, spending time at a shipyard abroad, and the possibility of navigating onboard Fednav ships.

This framework allows young employees to fully benefit from the shipping industry experience, Fednav added. The day-to-day learning process together with various social activities are crucial for both building relationships with and receiving valuable guidance from senior employees who share knowledge based on years of experience and expertise.

“This application process allows us to determine how our company compares to other employers in our area and this has been a terrific benchmarking experience for us,” explained Christine Mack, Manager of Employee Development.It is gratifying for us to see that our program for hiring young candidates is garnering attention, and that we can be held to our promise for delivering a higher standard, by attracting bright, enthusiastic young employees.
