CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY
Liburnia Maritime Agency is committed to delivering sustainable value to its employees, the environment and the community.
We ensure quality environment and working resources to all our employees. Our employees are the core value of the company, and investing in their professional development is very important not only to ensure the quality of our services but also to maintain a happy, healthy, positive, and stimulating workplace. With well-designed plan of educations and professional trainings, all employees have the possibility to upgrade their knowledge and acquire new professional skills. Group and individual educations are arranged throughout the year, and we’re measuring their progress with KPI for education.
All employees are covered with an additional health insurance policy which includes a yearly medical exam with the possibility to use 3 additional medical services of personal choice. Office job includes many hours of sitting in front of the computer, so in order to maintain the healthy posture and keep the positive mindset, we have implemented group workout session in the office once a week. Workout routine with the professional trainer include breathing techniques and stretching. We allow our employees to take a break during work hours whenever they feel the need. In our pleasure room employees can relax on the couch, read newspapers or watch the tv.
In order to improve the teamwork and communication we organize teambuilding events every year, encouraging the employees to bond, increase their trust and have fun together. All our employees are highly engaged in CRS projects and volunteering, which entice their social consciousness and empathy. Volunteering is supported by giving the extra free day to employee for each day they spent volunteering. The opinion of our employees, especially how they feel about the workplace is very important. Therefore, every year they take the anonymous survey, and we can proudly say the results show the highest level of satisfaction. The company enables the students to do internships. We’re helping them in developing their skills for easier start of professional career.
The present gender ratio in Liburnia is 50% women and 50% men.
We strive to minimize the negative impact on the environment by developing our business towards environmental sustainability. We are proud that our employees understand the importance of sustainable development and actively participate in improving our system so that the company achieves even more than set environmental goals.Liburnia’s workplace is plastic-free. Single use products are not welcome in our office. With usage of glass bottles and glasses, reusable cutlery and food containers we have minimized the waste and made our workplace healthier.
