Do your employees travel for work?

29 July 2011 - 6:31pm

There are many roles that require staff to travel as a part of their job.

Being a travelling employee can mean simple trips across the city, but it is not uncommon for some businesses to require their employees to travel interstate or even internationally.

Many companies have offices spread across the globe and require employees to regularly visit them to maintain efficient operations.

If this is the case, employers need to be sure their insurance strategy covers them for the time they spend in foreign countries.

In the event medical attention is required, depending on where your workers are travelling to - as well as their health cover arrangement - the cost of treatment could range from minimal to substantial.

Certain employees may have recognised health risks such as diabetes or heart disease and can benefit from the extra security provided in their corporate health plan.

It is in the interest of both the company and the employee that a business health insurance plan has the necessary measures in place to ensure good health for all staff, no matter where in the world they happen to be.

Insurance plans that cover employees within the office and abroad can be arranged by health insurance brokers, including specialised cover for frequent travellers.
