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.
 

Emergency solutions

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.

  • 24/7 response via a dedicated HOTLINE

  • Immediate advice related to the crisis situation

  • Risk assessment and definition of a crisis management strategy

  • Coordination of a national and international crisis unit

  • Realtime situation monitoring

  • Internal and external crisis communication

  • Establishment of a panel of experts as needed
