Traveling Employees: reduce the risk, manage the crises

Most companies have employees traveling to countries where there is an increased risk of a crisis erupts.

In the past two years, Europe has suffered a series of terrorist attacks in London, Brussels, Berlin, Paris, Nice, Stockholm, Manchester, and Barcelona. Are you aware of how many days your employees travel to either London, Paris, or Brussels in a year?

How do you manage this in the Executive Management Team?

The Executive Management Team responsibility (and challenges)

The actual risk of a traveling employee being a victim of terror is reasonably small. However, human, economic, and image costs are potentially very high.

The employee doesn’t even need to be directly involved in the attack to be negatively affected – Witnessing terrorism can also be potentially traumatizing.

Every day I prepare for the worst – and I am happier because of it

– Charlie Munger

At Human Advisor Group, we believe that the Executive Management Teams are responsible for taking care and actively managing the exposing risk of their employees. By both ethical and economic reasons – because as a competent chief, you need to sleep with a good conscience. In other words, we need to take as good care of our employees as we take care of our IT-system and buildings.

That means we need a system, which helps us do this. A system which can:

  • Reducing the risk of an incident occurs
  • Minimizing the human, economic and image costs
  • Enables the Management Team to handle the crisis professionally if it occurs

Our “Security abroad”- solution is a result of numerous years’ experience of doing this.
