Travel risk management is of vital importance in today’s interconnected world and global economy with increasing numbers of employees 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 much more complex and increasingly topical. This is especially true when employees are working in remote or dangerous locations, or in areas 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 incidents of terrorism are common, governments are volatile and the operating environment is challenging. 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 fundamental to ongoing success.
