BOSTON & CHICAGO -- (BUSINESS WIRE) -- ASIS 2013--Global Rescue, provider of the highest quality medical, security, intelligence and crisis response services for corporations and individuals, today announced the release of GRID, the only fully integrated travel risk and crisis response management tool. With GRID, employers can track employees traveling overseas, receive real-time alerts for global events, communicate with employees, and monitor their assets’ locations, all in one place. These capabilities are fully integrated with Global Rescue’s industry-leading crisis management and response services.
“The likelihood of businesses being impacted by global threats is increasing,” said Dan Richards, CEO and founder of Global Rescue, which has been active in every major global event of the past decade. “Organizations must improve their ability to be resilient and meet the legal duty of care they have to their employees. Global Rescue is the only vertically-integrated provider of medical, security, information and communication services that supports this. With GRID, we have reinvented the way enterprises manage and respond to risks impacting their human capital.”
To meet their “duty of care” obligations, employers must disclose travel-related risks to travelers and expatriates and provide employees with the information, resources, and accommodations necessary to ensure their health, safety, and security. Failure to do so can result in business interruptions, poor outcomes to emergent events, and significant liability.
