Oxford Economics states that 28% of current business would be lost without in-person meetings. Add to that Ernst & Young's prediction that there will be a 60% increase in the number of people sent to growth markets within the next three years, and the reality is that there will be increased risk within global mobility programs. 

Travel is now being built into the employment contract and is basically a work requirement. Shorter stints for more employees is a key trend in global mobility, and, with more people roaming, there are risks related to personal safety. Geo-political instabilities, terrorism and natural disasters are some of the potential causes. 

At the same time, many companies are not preparing employees for these risks. How does your program support the stress and challenges experienced by global employees?
