The World of Aid is Changing: Senior Leaders Discuss How Duty of Care Is Impacting their Decisions
Date: Thursday, July 9, 2015
Time: 12:30 p.m. New York Time
We all know that an employer’s Duty of Care is the obligation to take practical steps to safeguard employees against and reasonable and foreseeable dangers in the workplace. But did you know that NGOs must assume responsibility to adequately prepare employees and volunteers (and their families) working abroad? By doing so, NGOs have realized that it’s less costly to prevent and manage risk rather than having to react to an incident that can affect their employees, reputation and mission.
This one hour webinar will highlight critical research findings from the Global Benchmarking Study and discuss key characteristics that affect how NGOs fulfill their Duty of Care obligations, including the importance of training staff and protecting their reputation. Best practices will be explored and discussed among the panel of NGO executives. We hope you can join us for this informative and important session.
