Coming ashore: Seafarer turnover in the U.S. shipping industry

What factors influence the decision to leave a job at sea for shore-side work?

Join us for a discussion with Dr. Tony Lewis, Business, and Scott Saarheim, Marine Transportation. Dr. Lewis will describe preliminary results of a survey of Cal Maritime alumni. He’ll discuss how organizational behavior and human resource management theories related to satisfaction, motivation, and commitment can help to understand these findings. This presentation will be followed by Q & A led by Mr. Saarheim.

Thursday, April 6, at 1100 in ABS101. Refreshments served!

The Cal Maritime Scholar series was created to promote a culture of  research and scholarship on campus. It aims to share the excitement of research projects happening right now at Cal Maritime. Each event includes an interview by a faculty member outside the speaker’s discipline.
