Recently TOS started providing the entire payrolling of all Polish employees, working aboard the (harbour) tugs of Fairplay Towage. Because of this, the international maritime service provider TOS now employs more than 40 Polish seafarers.
“In January 2013, the cooperation between Fairplay Towage and TOS will reach its fifteenth year. Since the start of Fairplay Towage in Rotterdam all captains and mates are employed by TOS. In recent years TOS has expanded its branch network and services package strongly. For our location in Gdynia (Poland) this service is a good extension of current projects.” thus Marleen Stuurman, Executive Manager Operations.
Since 1998 TOS regulates all HR related matters for captains and mates employed on the (port) tugs in the ports of Rotterdam. Since TOS is also providing the payrolling for all Polish seafarers (HWTK·s & AB) they offer a total package for Fairplay Towage.
“The service for Fairplay Towage complements the current tasks package for our office. In addition to particularly recruitment & selection activities it is a nice challenge for our staff to run this project independently.” thus Jarek Brzoza, Poland Branch Manager. The office in Poland was founded in 2007 and the team consists of five employees.
