HERO Forum
September 29, 2015

Global organizations large and small are crossing borders into new markets, and it is inevitable that their employees will endure additional risks and require additional resources to meet their business objectives. A survey by the International Corporate Health Leadership Council identified six trends and ten key recommendations that can protect the globally-mobile workforce. In order to succeed and grow, organizations need to address these new challenges. Failure to manage them can lead to loss in global talent, productivity, and revenue and can result in business disruption.

After completing this session, participants will be able to:

  1. Evaluate global health trends and the impact on employee health. 
  2. Provide guidance to corporate management regarding benchmarking standards and best practices to mitigate the impact of those trends. 
  3. Identify programs to support an internationally mobile workforce.
