TREVOSE, Pa., April 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- International SOS, the world's leading medical and security services company, will partner with the Forum for Expatriate Management on a complimentary April 9 webinar, "Evacuate Me!", focusing on how organizations can support their expatriate employees during crisis events and fulfill their Duty of Care.

Evacuate Me!
What every HR professional needs to know to keep their global workforce healthy, safe and secure
Tuesday, April 9, 2013, 1:00 – 2:00 PM EDT

It's inevitable that today's global mobility professionals will eventually face some type of medical or security crisis or evacuation with one of their expatriates (or dependents) or international business traveler. It's usually just a matter of time.

This session will inform global mobility and other HR professionals of the most common solutions and best practices. The panel will review the eight most common tripwires to avoid and explore why HR plays such a pivotal role in helping organizations fulfill their Duty of Care. Throughout the session, the following questions—and more—will be addressed:

  • Are companies prepared to manage this?
  • What can be done today so they are ready?
  • What can be done to prevent an evacuation or other crisis from happening in the first place?

Brian Friedman, CEO and founder of the Forum for Expatriate Management, will moderate and be joined by International SOS experts Robert L. Quigley, M.D. D.Phil, Professor of Surgery, Regional Medical Director, Americas; and by Alex Puig, Regional Security Director, Americas. The panelists will take attendees through some of their own real-world practices and reveal "quick wins" to help organizations evaluate and prepare for their own risks, as well as what to do in the midst of an international crisis.
