In order to achieve safe operation and to continuously improve service quality, K Line believes that a combination of technical and non-technical skills is important. Technical skills refer to professional marine and technical knowledge/skills whereas non-technical skills are about improving communication and collaboration through respect and care for each other.
Through the K ARE programme, everyone in the K Line group both onboard and ashore will share its societal mission and values, and develop a truly open culture where each individual can naturally demonstrate leadership regardless of title or background.
By maturing its organisational culture, the group will foster a sense of unity and through continuous efforts to preserve the environment, will deliver safe, high quality and sustainable transportation service that will contribute to society.
John Eric Oaing, 3rd officer at K Line said on the K ARE programme, “We can now clearly see ourselves in somebody’s shoes and understand the way they feel and react in different situations. A life changing chapter of our career that we will always be grateful.”
