    Mobility Operational Excellence – Erfolgsfaktoren für effektives Mobility Management

    Die internationale Arbeitswelt wandelt sich schnell und stetig. Dies gilt auch für Prozesse und Aufgabenstellungen von Global Mobility. Das internationale Umfeld verlangt von den Verantwortlichen schnelle und effiziente Reaktionen und Lösungen. Operational Excellence ist hierbei ein zentrales Thema.

    Netherlands Chapter

    Duty of Care - are you doing enough?

    Hosted by: 

    International SOS

    Run by:

    Hillbrook Expatriate Tax Solutions.


    We are happy to invite you to join us for our 16th FEM Netherlands Chapter event on November 27, 2014 which will be hosted by International SOS in Amsterdam and as always run by Hillbrook Expatriate Tax Solutions. International SOS has just been announced as the winner for the APAC Expatriate Management and Mobility Awards (EMMAs) for the category ‘Best practice in challenging locations’, see 

    The topic of this event is Duty of Care. The current Ebola crisis raging in West Africa and now with transmission to Spain and the United States, triggers international companies to think about the health and safety risks of their employees who are traveling and working abroad. Are we capable to quickly and effectively respond to public health threats or natural disasters, do we have a clear policy that governs our employees that travel and work abroad? In other words: are we meeting our Duty of Care (DoC) obligations?


    Alan Flanagan – AVP, Global Mobility, Cognizant Technology Solutions

    Laurent Taymans – Regional Medical Director, International SOS

    Other presenters will be confirmed.
