This is the eighth and final step in the eight-part complimentary webinar series designed to enhance, challenge, and ensure that organizations are fulfilling their Duty of Care obligations.

Step 8: When the Dust has Settled
How to ensure employer/employee compliance and identify gaps
Thursday, June 27, 2013, 1 - 2 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time

It can be a bit mind boggling making sure all the pieces to the Duty of Care puzzle fit neatly in place. Are your organization and its employees compliant when it comes to travel risk management? How can you identify gaps? What checks and balances are in place to ensure that all areas are met? And how can data and audits help in the process?

Led by Tim Daniel, Group Executive VP for International SOS, a panel of experts will guide attendees through this last critical step with the following in mind:

  • The importance of establishing compliance measures and tools to ensure all parties are on the same page;
  • Updating management and employees on changes in procedures;
  • The importance of an "after action review" and the need to do this quickly to turn an incident into a teachable moment;
  • How data collection and audits can be analyzed and used as benchmarks for updates to Duty of Care and travel risk management plans.

Daniel will be joined by Lisbeth Claus, Ph.D, SPHR, GPHR, Global Professor of HR, Willamette University; James Lejcar, Jr., Life Safety Manager, Discover Financial Services; and Melissa Kopf, Program Manager, Global Security, Walgreen Co., who will take attendees through some of their own real-world practices.
