People Development

Our employees are essential to the success of Thome. We believe that developing our talents and assisting them in their careers is the best way to retain our employees and ensure the continuity of our business.

As the maritime industry continues to digitise and a greater emphasis is placed on decarbonisation, it is critical that our seafarers continue to upskill. Thome has always been at the forefront of utilising cutting-edge training techniques to enhance our people’s learning and development in order to keep up with technological advancements.

The COVID-19 pandemic provided an opportunity for us to incorporate technological advancements into our learning avenues, hastening our transition to learning using information technology equipment. Thome was able to conduct scenario-based training on virtual platforms by utilising technologies such as augmented reality (“AR”) and virtual reality (“VR”).
