What would you do if…

  1. Your French employee called you to ask for your help after being hit by a scooter on her way to work?
  2. Your American factory manager when on a trip to your Chongqing asked you to find a local doctor to help with his food poisoning?
  3. Your Chinese employee asked whether it’s safe for her to travel to Singapore for a conference now the Zika virus has hit the country?
  4. Your Filipino manager requested three days’ urgent leave to return to the Philippines to pick up medicine for his son that he is unable to access in China?

Join us for an interactive workshop, facilitated by Dr. Greg Jakubowski and Dr. Carrianne Ewe from International SOS, as we discuss how HR can help protect their international assignees from the multiple health risks they face as they settle into a new country. With the average cost of failed assignments ranging from US $570k to 950k and a range of increasing and complicated health risks facing international employees and travellers in China and the APAC region, this workshop will help you and your organisation to:

  • Know what can happen, why you should prepare, when you would need help and how to get help.
  • Review how far your role extends: do you ever move from mobility manager to crisis manager?
  • Understand the different health risks facing expats vs. business travelers.
  • Reveal the insights from 4 case studies of health risks faced by expats in China and the APAC region.
  • Gather best practice and practical tips to help look after your workforce.

When you register for this event we encourage you to tell us about a health risk that you are concerned about or that has affected your international assignees or business travelers so that we can discuss how to best respond to this threat. All suggested topics will be kept strictly confidential and will be discussed without mentioning the specifics of the case.
