Happy Day of the Seafarer!
Some of our lovely Bachmann HR Group family have been getting in to the spirit of things ahead of Seafarers Awareness Week! We hope you all have a very enjoyable #DayOfTheSeafarer whether you are at sea or shore!
For those of you that may not be aware, Sunday 25th June is observed worldwide as the Day of the Seafarer.
In 2010, the International Maritime Organisation (IMO), decided to designate the 25th June as the International Day of the Seafarer as a way to recognise that almost everything that we use in our daily lives has been directly or indirectly affected by sea transport.
The purpose of the day is to give thanks to seafarers for their contribution to the world economy and the civil society; and for the risks and personal costs they bear whilst working at sea.
I am sure you will all agree that their contribution to our economy and society as a whole is invaluable!
Happy Day of the Seafarer from all of us here at Bachmann!
