Organizations are focusing more closely on employee safety and employee engagement, whether that is bringing them back to the office, or sending them out on the road. The International Organization for Standardization released the ISO 31030:2021 Travel risk management standard for organizations to provide global guidance on travel risk management. The guidance aims to “Promote a culture where travel-related risks are taken seriously, resourced adequately, managed effectively, and the benefits to the organization and stakeholders are acknowledged.”
To align your organization’s travel risk program with the new ISO 31030 guidelines, Advito developed the Traveler Security Program Assessment to provide personalized insights into where your program stands today. It is fully customized, taking into consideration your organizational flow and structure, risks specific to your organization and industry, and your organization’s corporate culture.
Benefits of the Traveler Security Program Assessment
People wellbeing needs to be top priority at any company. Otherwise, employers risk damage to employee physical and mental health and decreasing job satisfaction, which could lead to talent loss. People who don’t feel safe and cared for are unlikely to stay. This can cause reputational damage, rising costs and negatively impact company performance. Managing employee risks correctly, on the contrary, will give organizations an edge in talent recruitment and retention.
Completing the Traveler Security Program Assessment and improving your program will reassure employees that their health, safety, and security are organizational priorities. The Traveler Security Program Assessment will also help you determine ways to protect your company’s assets, reputation, business continuity, and, most importantly, your employees – helping you keep and attract the best talent in your industry.
How the Traveler Security Program Assessment Works
During the Traveler Security Program Assessment, travel security experts meet with the key stakeholders in your organization for a full-day live session to perform an in-depth review and audit of your travel risk program. The comprehensive assessment explores 11 core aspects of duty of care and covers disease outbreaks, extreme weather, terrorist attacks, theft and accident scenarios.
The session will explore:
- What policies are in place around traveler risk? Are travelers aware of them?
- Who’s responsible for which travel risks, i.e., do some aspects of traveler security fall under the travel program and others under corporate security?
- What’s the protocol for travelers to request assistance on the road?
- What’s the protocol for reaching out to travelers during and after a crisis?
- Do travelers have a defined duty of loyalty to contact the company after a crisis? Are travelers aware of their responsibilities?
At the end of the session, you’ll receive a snapshot of results, revealing where your program stands compared to similar organizations and best-in-class programs. Following the assessment, you’ll be provided personalized results with findings, evaluation, and recommendations designed to bring your organization into compliance with ISO 31030 global guidance.
