Shared ownership and responsibility
PF is one of the few companies in the local fishing industry where employees own as much as 10% of the company. Any employee who has worked for a Pioneer Fishing division for 12 months or longer can join the company’s Employee Shared Ownership Trust (ESOP). Through ESOP employees get an opportunity to own shares in the group. Shareholders are kept up to date about logistical and financial aspects, as well as directive decisions.

The 14th annual distribution to beneficiaries
The longer employees work at Pioneer Fishing business units, the more they get to know the culture of the company. They take more responsibility and are more productive. We celebrate and reward employees for their years of service. Some have been with us for more than 30 years.
