TREVOSE, Pa., April 24, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --


India is an attractive destination for organizations looking to expand their operations, with domestic demand continuing to fuel the economy. Despite increased economic activities and promising opportunities, civil unrest remains an issue. There also exists a complex business environment, where policies and infrastructure are the domain of individual states, posing challenges for organizations and their mobile workforces.  

This webinar – the second in a four-part series investigating the BRIC countries – looks at how organizations can succeed in India. Our India-based experts will discuss healthcare challenges for employees and expatriates, security and safety threats, and travel risks. International SOS experts in India will also share the modes of travel considered safest, look at the state of healthcare in the country as well as present key takeaways and best practices for preparing your organization.  

Anyone who manages or is responsible for employees overseas, and writers who cover related issues, will benefit from this webinar, including those working in the areas of medical, security, business continuity, risk management, travel and legal.
