Cross-border solutions for international business travel risk management challenges
Today, business travel is an integral part of the day job for many employees. As companies expand into overseas markets, a wider cohort of staff is spending time away from home. What’s more, as businesses increasingly seek revenue growth outside their struggling home economies, traveller destinations are becoming increasingly exotic. Managers are as likely to find themselves in Bangalore, Bogota or Beijing, as in Singapore or Sydney.
For an insurance or benefits manager or head of security at any multinational company, one of the most difficult challenges is managing sensitively and effectively a situation in which employees traveling in a foreign country on business become sick, find themselves in potentially dangerous situations or need evacuation from a politically unstable country.
