Commitment to investing in people

NYK RUMINA 4E Angielo Patricio

At Columbia we prioritise nurturing a culture that values diversity, collaboration, fosters personal and professional development, and empowers individuals to reach their full potential. We are committed to the ongoing development of our employees, which is why investing in the growth of our people not only enhances their capabilities but also strengthens our organisation as a whole. Through comprehensive training programmes, mentorship opportunities, and continuous learning initiatives, we empower our employees to continuously expand their knowledge and skills, encouraging them to stay at the forefront of technological advancements, and equipping them with the tools they need to thrive in a rapidly evolving business landscape.  

An environment that encourages collaboration


Working as a team is encouraged at Columbia. Collaborations require leadership, commitment, passion and competence – some of which are our core values in a company where our vision is to be a leading international provider of ship management and maritime services. Collaborating allows for access to greater sources, increasing the success of teams who propose opposing goals in order to accomplish a shared outcome. It is for this reason that we commit to investing in our people, providing them with access to cutting-edge e-learning, training courses, simulations and workshops which enhance their skills and knowledge in the industry, and beyond, both on board and ashore. Our emphasis on teamwork and open communication enables us to effectively leverage the strengths of each individual, resulting in a harmonious blend of skills and expertise. 

Committed to the ongoing development of our employees


Our investment in our employees, their development, and our collaborative culture is what sets us apart and enables us to achieve remarkable results. By fostering an environment that values and nurtures our people, we create a strong foundation for success, ensuring that our organisation continues to thrive in the digital age. We encourage them to stay at the forefront of technological advancements, equipping them with the tools they need to thrive in a rapidly evolving business landscape, but we also firmly believe in investing in their health and well-being. Providing comprehensive healthcare services, access to a 24/7 mental health helpline, and free internet to help seafarers stay connected with their families and loved ones, we foster a positive work environment that enables our employees to perform their duties with utmost dedication and focus.
