International Assignment Services
Streamline your global mobility programme with the right healthcare & security support
Managing international assignments and localisations is a tough job. Preparing people takes time, research and a lot of supplier management. If assignees have dependents, the complexity grows exponentially. And when you finally make it all work, you need to keep them happy on location – so they can deliver on the goals the business has set for them – otherwise it’s all the way back to the beginning.
Research shows that failed assignments can cost companies in excess of $950,000. Your assignees’ productivity is paramount to success. The company’s bottom line depends on their ability to focus and not be unnecessarily distracted by their next medical appointment or security concern.

- Prepare your people for what they will encounter on assignment
- Deal with only one support solution, no matter where you're sending them
- Provide support from someone who understands the gap between home and away
- In the event of a health or security crisis, access the world's leading response service
Benefits - improve your ability to:
- Convince your people to take an assignment
- Retain your people on location and help in their localisation
- Reduce assignment failure rates
- Ensure your mobile employees are as productive on assignment as they are at home
COVID-19 pandemic response
Have you reviewed your international assignee risk exposure?
During the pandemic, we observed a number of rapidly emerging needs in the international assignee community:
- Access to familiar local healthcare providers is no longer an option – TeleConsultation with the ability to prescribe and deliver medication has never been more important – and is likely to remain so.
- All assignees need the ability to confidentially self-declare health, wellbeing, and security concerns – in order to keep them happy and productive, and remaining in location.
- The international assignee community will likely be your most vulnerable people as the pandemic progresses – proactive checks and reports on their welfare will give you piece of mind and likely prevent an issue from unnecessarily escalating into a costly evacuation.
Please contact us if you would like to conduct a quick assessment of your risk exposure.
