This forum is complimentary to those that are involved in the administration of their company’s security, mobility and benefits programs (e.g. C-Suite Executives, Corporate HR, Benefits, Mobility and Security).  Space is limited so reserve your spot now!

Multinational organizations are increasingly concerned with global security, health and cyber risks. In a research study sponsored by UnitedHealthcare Global (in partnership with the Economist Intelligence Unit), nearly all [96%] responding companies believe they need to find new ways of dealing with increasing health and security risks, and half believe instability in global markets will increase over the next three years. 

In this session, you will learn about macro trends impacting global employers and their globally mobile employees as well as innovative resources and methods to keep global employees safe, healthy and on assignment.  Don’t miss this opportunity to gain valuable insights that are changing the way global employers manage their Travel Risk Management and Duty of Care programs.
