Evergreen persists in the ideal of "people of talent are the most valuable assets of an enterprise" of Dr. Chang Yung-fa, the founder of the Evergreen Group, and offer a full range of training courses to both land and sea personnel.
New recruits are given orientation designed to help familiarize them with the company, so they can blend quickly into the "Evergreen family". During probation period, the company will ensure that the learning outcomes of new employees meet the standards via assignments, reviews and learning reports.
Evergreen improves the functional capability and productivity of the employees by providing multiple training courses and implementing cross-discipline and cross-nation rotation training. By offering various expatriation opportunities, we have trained many marine management talent at different levels who have internationalized operation visions and capacities.
In 2020, external professional training courses were postponed in the light of the COVID-19 pandemic and the average training hours for shore personnel were 15.3 hours. Evergreen then purchased the online learning accounts of the CWLC in May 2020 and provided them to more than 300 managers at home and abroad. Evergreen won the "2020 Learning Organization Award of the Year" and the "2020 King of Learning of the Year" from the CWLC, only half a year after the accounts were activated.
Evergreen is the first in the industry to implement a "sea-land" orientation program, in which the sea crew is offered the opportunity to work on land or overseas, where they can apply their professional knowledge and contribute to the efficiency of the service chain. The switch of roles also enhances teamwork between land crew and sea crew, which ultimately improves management efficiency.
Evergreen has established the Evergreen Seafarer Training Center (ESTC) in 1999. The Center offers training programs which meet International Maritime Organization's model course requirements and the International Convention on Standards of Training, Certification and Watchkeeping for Seafarers (STCW) Code. The Center provides training of the highest quality for seafarers who serve on Evergreen's fleet and also on other shipping lines.
In response to the Company's shipbuilding plan, the ESTC conducted the industry-leading WINGD main engine control training in Taiwan. In 2020, a total of 90 onshore classes were held and attended by 641 onshore seamen. The average training hours for sea personnel were 26.1 hours.
Evergreen was presented the award by Ministry of Transportation and Communications for consecutive years. In 2020, Evergreen again won the first place for "Granting maritime university students the number of trainees and the total number of days onboard".
