Thome Taps Cadet Program for Talent Retention

Posted by June 13, 2016

As a ship management company that invests in the next generation of seafarers, Thome said it has for the past decade consistently recruited talented cadets to join its International Cadet Program. This cadet program has proved to be a resounding success with high retention rates recorded, the group said – in 2015, 97 percent of cadets continued with Thome following their training.


Claes Eek Thorstensen, President and COO of The Thome Group, spoke highly of the Korean officers and cadets Thome has worked with, when he said, “The Korean workforce working with us at Thome are invaluable. In order to keep pace with the ever-changing tides of the industry, we currently have 889 cadets in our Global Cadet Program, out of which 33 are Korean deck and engine cadets. This reflects the 2015 BIMCO/ICS Manpower Report, which stated 28,168 of the total supply of seafarers are from The Republic of Korea.”
