There’s a lot of talk within our industry about the importance of crew communications – everything from the internet to social media – but do we really know what our crew want?
InterManager Associate member Futurenautics aims to find out by conducting a research project to establish the facts. The data from the survey will benefit seafarers and the wider industry by giving a fuller picture of the communications facilities provided at sea, allowing companies and their staff to benchmark provision by sector and across the industry.
Intermanager secretary general Captain Kuba Szymanski is looking to InterManager ship manager and crew manager members to enable their crew to take part in an online survey, or by post if preferred. Answers will be completely anonymous unless respondents choose to supply their contact details.
The online survey is at https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/Crew_Comms_Survey
Questions include seafarer IT skill levels, the provision, type and location of communications on board and what effects seafarers perceive the availability of onboard communications facilities to have on crew members.
