Leading Change for a Re-Imagined Future: Recognising Organisations for Their Exceptional Duty of Care Programmes


The International SOS Foundation has revealed their 2023 Duty of Care Awards shortlist today. From leading technology firms and financial institutions to NGOs and manufacturing conglomerates, we received entries from 34 different countries.

Honouring organisations around the world for their dedication to protecting the health, safety, security and wellbeing of their global workforce, the Awards are now in its sixth edition. This year’s event theme focuses on resilience and change in light of robust and challenging global circumstances – Leading Change for a Re-Imagined Future.

This year’s Head of Judges, Peter O’Neil, CEO of ASIS International said,

On behalf of our esteemed panel of judges, I would like to congratulate each of the finalists included in this year’s shortlist. The diversity and breadth of the entries received this year was outstanding. These organisations and individuals embodied an unparalleled level of commitment and excellence to protecting the health, safety, security and wellbeing of their people. As we face with challenging and complex times, I do sincerely hope that our finalists will inspire others to adopt these robust Duty of Care initiatives within the core of their workforces.

Kai Boschmann, Executive Director of the International SOS Foundation said,

The world has become more fragile experiencing a state of poly-crisis through economic instability, geopolitical tensions, natural disasters exacerbated by climate change, new and re-occurring disease outbreaks and security threats. This year’s Duty of Care Summit looks to reimagine the future resilience measures and best practices to bring positive change for our future. We look forward to announcing the Duty of Care Awards winners in-person during our event on 25 May.

The International SOS Foundation is proud to present Chubb, the world’s largest publicly traded property & casualty insurance company, as Platinum sponsor for the 2023 Duty of Care Awards & Summit.

Frank Scalia, Vice President – Head of National Sales, Accident & Health Division at Chubb said,
