Abstract:This study aims to investigate the impact of ship owners’ ‘seafaring recruitment reputation’ upon the job-related attitudes of Taiwanese ship officers. Data was collected through questionnaires from Taiwanese ship officers. Based on literature reviews and realistic seafaring conditions, the authors hypothesized that there would be impacts upon the job-related attitudes of Taiwanese ship officers occurred by ship owners’ reputation about seafaring recruitment. An empirical analysis based on a structural equation model was conducted. Results revealed that ‘wage & welfare’, ‘seafaring path’ and ‘diverse seafarers’, i.e. component factors of ‘seafaring recruitment reputation’, all have significant effects upon the job-related attitudes of Taiwanese ship officers. In details, Taiwanese ship officers’ intents to retention are affected significantly by ship owners’ reputation about seafaring recruitment, mediated by their commitments toward shipping companies. Results of this study imply that ship owners’ essential measures toward keeping domestic ship officers are: heighten wage and welfare, widen seafaring path, and minimize the employments of foreign seafarer.
