Open up new markets – without opening up to risk

Updated: Jan 30, 2020

Businesses are increasingly alert to the commercial opportunities offered by developing countries. These underexposed markets often promise considerable yields. However, at the same time, these regions can also be challenging when it comes to personal security. Even basic logistics can become a security issue and the wrong approach to protective security may leave a visitor attracting the wrong type of attention.

At the same time, the Corporate Manslaughter and Corporate Homicide Act 2007, which imposes criminal liability on companies that seriously breach their duty of care to employees, has led to increasing concern over how to look after travelling employees. According to one 2019 study, 73% of corporate travel buyers consider ‘duty of care’ their number one challenge.
