Of the many challenges facing companies that send workers abroad for short- or long-term engagements, none causes more anxiety than concerns about health care. Employees' insecurity that they and their families won't receive adequate health care in other countries, or that local health challenges will negatively impact their lives, can drain the productivity of overseas employees, cut short otherwise promising assignments and even cause many of your best employees to decline an overseas engagement.

In a recent survey of 360 senior executives from multinational companies, conducted by the Economist Intelligence Unit and UnitedHealthcare Global, 96 percent said that, to pursue global growth, they needed new ways of addressing increased health and security travel risks for their globally mobile employees. In this program Margaret-Mary Wilson, M.D., chief medical officer and senior vice president at UnitedHealthcare Global, and Allen Koski a senior vice president at UnitedHealthcare Global, will discuss health care insecurity and describe steps employers can take to minimize its impact. This includes addressing misperceptions around access to quality health care, providing objective information to employees and addressing cultural challenges. This program will outline a plan that can move your organization from health care insecurity to optimized health outcomes, improved productivity, ease of administration and overall peace of mind.
