Today’s interconnected world and global economy means that increasing numbers of employees are required to travel extensively overseas, often for long periods of time, to multiple destinations and frequently to very unfamiliar environments.

As a result, an employer’s ‘Duty of Care’ towards their personnel has become more complex and increasingly topical. This is especially true when employees are working in remote or dangerous locations where local security and medical facilities are likely to be substandard, ineffective or completely lacking.

Employees working in less developed countries may find that the support networks they are used to just don’t exist. They may feel vulnerable and at risk when operating in areas where levels of crime are high or there is an elevated risk of terrorism and governments are volatile. No longer is it acceptable for companies to ignore such issues.

Ensuring the health, safety and security of employees when working overseas is key to staff well-being and productivity but it is also essential in the protection of the company’s brand and reputation and is key to ongoing success.

At Healix, we offer a suite of products and services to provide you and your employees with a robust support system to attend to the myriad of issues facing today’s global workforce.
