Safe Travelers

Duty of Care

Do you know where your travelers are?
Are they safe?   Are they well?   Is their data secure?

Duty of care is a serious responsibility in this time of globalization. As business travel has exploded into new markets worldwide, risks have grown significantly in size and scope while national regulations are increasing the organization's burden of legal responsibility. As an employer, you should always know where and when your employees are in any given location. You must also know how to find them and communicate with them, should the need arise.

Types of Risk
Exposure to risk can increasingly be found virtually anywhere and occur anytime of the day or night. Potential problems come in many forms and it is up to companies to secure their travelers well-being wherever they are. Threats and risk can include those that affect:
  Personal health, safety and mobility due to geopolitical turmoil including wars, coups, terrorism, disease outbreaks and weather
  Data, equipment and individual security due to cyber attacks
  Individual or corporate reputations
  Operational capabilities globally
  Financial and corporate productivity
  Electronic communications
