Duty of care

Employers have an important obligation when it comes to the health, safety and security of their employees, and that obligation doesn’t end when an employee leaves the country. In fact, when an employee travels on business, it’s even more important for companies to be proactive about understanding and reducing the risks that the employee faces.

This white paper addresses the many facets of fulfilling duty of care obligations to business travelers—from assessing risks and informing employees before and during a trip, to monitoring their locations, dynamic risks, as well as protecting them with swift responses.
