VISAKHAPATNAM: Dredging Corporation of India Limited (DCIL) has bagged the ‘Organisation with Innovative HR practices’ award presented at the Asia Pacific HRM Congress 2014, a conclave of CEOs and HR professionals.

DCIL was selected for the award in recognition of the strategic position the organisation holds in the fraternity. Chairman-cum-managing director DK Mohanty received the award at a function held at Bangalore.

The DCIL, during the past three years, has taken various steps for improving the working condition on board the dredgers and redressal of grievances of the floating staff.

At present the corporation employs about 750 marine personnel to man its dredgers. During the past two years, the Corporation recruited 32 Diploma in Nautical Sciences (DNS) and 29 Trainee Marine Engineers (TME) with professional skills, who are undergoing training on various dredgers. In due course they will be elevated as Dredge Masters and CEOs.

Attrition rate in the Corporation has also reduced considerably among the floating officers, owing to the constant efforts made by DCI in providing training to DNS and TME engineers who completed their requisite courses from Indian Maritime University affiliated institutions. Availability of trained manpower in the field has been suitably addressed by innovative methods as well.
