DEVELOP A TRAVEL SECURITY POLICY
In order to establish a travel security policy for your organisation, GEOS will help you draw up a risk matrix by destination country for your business travellers and expatriates and implement appropriate procedures according to the level of risk identified.
PREVENT EXPATRIATE RISK
When sending one or more of your employees on international assignment, GEOS will help you assess your employees’ movements from a security perspective and identify logistical solutions (places of residence and work, trips, etc.) to ensure minimum exposure to existing threats.
INFORM BUSINESS TRAVELLERS AND EXPATRIATES OF THE RISKS INVOLVED
Business travellers or expatriates carrying out assignments in potentially unstable areas are today faced with real threats that can compromise their safety: physical attacks, arbitrary detention, data theft, kidnapping, etc.
In order to anticipate and prevent most of these risk situations and allow you to meet your safety obligations as an employer, GEOS provides solutions to inform and reassure business travellers with regard to safety/security rules when on assignment.
Monitoring and support
INFORM AND TRACK EMPLOYEES DURING ASSIGNMENTS
To meet employers’ safety obligations, GEOS has developed a tool to:
Meet the legal requirements concerning the “Duty of care”, in other words to inform your employees on international assignment of the risks involved in order to reduce their exposure to risk
Implement an effective management and decision-making support tool
Track your employees on international assignment
Receive updates on the security conditions of the areas in which they are deployed
Anticipate any developments that may have a security impact
Receive targeted recommendations which can be implemented immediately
WELCOME AND SUPPORT YOUR EMPLOYEES UPON ARRIVAL
To support your employees upon their arrival in a high risk area, GEOS implements a Meet & Greet service to:
Welcome travellers upon arrival at the airport
Provide them with information on the country’s domestic situation, and specifically in relation to areas where trips are planned
Remind them of general security issues
Inform them about the rules of conduct and appropriate safety instructions for the risks identified in the area
ENSURE THE SAFETY OF YOUR EMPLOYEES DURING INTERNATIONAL ASSIGNMENTS
To prevent the various threats that your expatriates and business travellers may face, GEOS provides you with security escorts, assessing the local situation and the constraints of your employees’ assignments, recommending measures to be taken and tracking their movements when travelling.
PROVIDE SUPPORT AND ADVICE IN CRISIS SITUATIONS
The consequences of a crisis can have a significant impact on a company’s image and business continuity and require the establishment of a specific crisis management system. The speed of response to an event is crucial if it is to be managed effectively. This is why, in an emergency situation when everyone is under constant pressure, it is important to be supported and advised by an experienced professional in order to make the right decisions and prepare an appropriate communication strategy.
