Now more than ever, organizations recognize the need to provide duty of care—principles that protect the well-being, security, and safety of their people. Today’s leaders understand duty of care as a guiding concept that allows them to look after their people and gain a competitive edge in the global environment.

As workplace trends and business threats continue to evolve, all organizations benefit from following four steps when considering duty of care:

  1. Learn about duty of care in your operating environment.
  2. Assess your current systems for managing duty of care.
  3. Update your policies to meet duty of care organizational needs.
  4. Create new practices that implement your duty of care organizational needs.

With 20 years of experience, WorldAware has the integrated risk management expertise that organizations need to take these steps—and the solutions to keep organizations’ operations on track and their people free from harm.

WorldAware works with over 800 organizations in both the public and private sectors around the globe to ensure Duty of Care by offering multi-pronged, scalable, and tailored risk management solutions that provide intelligence, forewarning, and assistance and response capabilities. 

Organizations today don’t just want to succeed in business—they want to do what’s right. Duty of Care appeals to leaders who want to keep their people and assets safe as their businesses grow.

Intelligence

Today, organizations need to remain vigilant about developments that could impact their business. But it’s not enough to just hear the facts about a given situation. To take the next right step, organizations need thoughtful analysis and contextualized insights to understand how to avoid negative situations before they impact their people and operations.  

WorldAware offers the intelligence organizations need, when they need it. Our team of over 100 intelligence and security experts includes embedded subject matter experts who speak more than 25 languages and hail from around the globe. Whether we are issuing breaking incident alerts or equipping organizations with forecasting reports to prepare for the future, our team covers a range of topics that impact organizations and their ability to deliver on Duty of Care, including:

  • Health
  • Kidnapping
  • Terrorism
  • Environment
  • Transportation
  • Geopolitics
  • Americas
  • Europe/CIS
  • Middle East and North Africa (MENA)

 

Forewarning

Organizations interested in protecting their people and assets must be warned about impending risks in order to take appropriate action. Risks may take on many different forms. Some risks remain static and predictable, allowing organizations to reliably plan months or years in advance. Others appear out of the blue and require quick action to mitigate negative impact. Through continuous monitoring and swift communication, organizations can ensure they will be able to respond to risks in a way that upholds Duty of Care, no matter the circumstance.

At WorldAware, we are committed to the timeliness and accuracy of our intelligence, ensuring our clients are forewarned so they can avoid threats before they become immediate risks that require a response. Our experts in Annapolis, London, Cape Town, and Singapore provide 24/7, follow-the-sun monitoring from our locations around the globe, delivering daily, monthly, and timely special reports alongside rapid incident and event alerts.  

 

Assistance and Response

In the event of a crisis, delivering on Duty of Care will require assistance or response tailored to the unique circumstances impacting your organization and people. The right assistance and response allow organizations to keep operating and to keep their people safe. More than just knowing what is happening, leaders need to be equipped with the best advice to take the next right step for the well-being of their organization.

When our clients face critical threats, WorldAware stands ready to equip them with the right information and tools to navigate a situation depending on their specific needs. Wherever and whenever a crisis occurs, our Global Assistance and Response team is available with critical monitoring services, a 24-hour hotline, GPS and communications technologies to keep track of your people on the ground, and the capabilities to intervene with a response if necessary.
