Safety and Security - Duty of Care

Reassurance, safety and wellbeing

As employees cross borders and often work in hazardous environments, there are increased risks for an organization’s employees and the accompanying family. These may range from hostile political environments, natural disasters, exposure to disease, travel accidents and other threats and incidents.

Duty of care is an organisation’s obligation to ensure the safety and well-being of their employees throughout the assignment or the relocation period.

This poses various challenges especially when it concerns offering the expected reassurance to the accompanying family and reaching out and communicating directly to them.

How can Meet2Talk support Duty of Care?

When an incident occurs, effective communication with employees is a key issue. However, being able to inform the accompanying family is equally important.

Meet2Talk is an easy-to-use online communication tool enabling the company to communicate directly with all accompanying spouses and families at any specific location. It allows your organisation to communicate with the accompanying families before, during or after an incident has occurred.

It is also possible to upload documents and information relating to the incident, thereby ensuring a flow of accurate and important information available to all spouses and partners.
