Key Considerations for Keeping Your Relocating Employees Safe
Posted by: Daniel McInnes, Client Services Manager
“Duty of Care” is the responsibility that employers have to ensure the well-being, safety, and security of their employees. This responsibility should always be in place, but is especially necessary, and more pronounced, when relocating employees and their families are on an international assignment in a new location away from home.
In today’s increasingly volatile world, this part of risk management has become crucial, with terror attacks, civil uprising, hurricanes, volcanic eruptions all having taken place in recent years and posing a risk to employees. To safeguard business operations and employees, your organization's preparedness is key.

- What steps are needed to ensure you are prepared for unforeseen crises.
