Webinar: ID# 1025083
Recorded On-Demand
About This Course:
Bombings, mass shootings, natural disasters, disease outbreaks, road accidents, and simply getting sick, these are just a few of the important reasons organizations need to address how they’re managing the duty of care of their traveling workers.

International business travelers may be particularly vulnerable to harm given unfamiliar and potentially unpredictable surroundings, and many companies overlook the essential need to develop a comprehensive travel management program.

You owe your workers a duty of care, and if you fail to properly assess and mitigate the risk of harm to your workers abroad, or fail to provide them with adequate resources, you could face legal and reputation liabilities.

Join us for an in-depth webinar led by global HR expert Professor Lisbeth Claus. She will provide critical insights on making sure your travel management program is designed to mitigate risks, effectively train employees on duty of care practices, and apprise company leadership of your legal obligations in this area.

You’ll learn:
  • The need for employers to assess and mitigate employees’ travel risks
  • How a strategic and operational duty-of-care plan can help bolster your company’s overall risk-management program
  • The most common mistakes employers make when it comes to duty-of-care obligations
  • The importance of customizing your duty-of-care plan to your organization’s travel patterns and risk tolerance levels
  • The sustainable, loyalty-boosting benefits of an effective travel-management program
