New Categories and Prestigious Judging Panel Announced

The International SOS Foundation today launched the annual 2017 Global Duty of Care Awards, recognising organisations and individuals who drive excellence in the mitigation of travel, health and security risk and contribute to effectively protecting workers overseas. Following the success of the inaugural Awards in 2016, which attracted applications from organisations around the world, the Awards have been expanded for 2017 with the addition of four new categories and once again are adjudicated by a prestigious judging panel.

Laurent Fourier, Director of the International SOS Foundation, said:

“Duty of Care responsibilities impact a range of stakeholders within organisations. Risk and Security managers are looking to reduce risk to their people and assets, while maximising compliance and business continuity. Travel Managers need to make sure personnel are safe when abroad and properly informed with the ability to reach out to them. Occupational Health & Safety and Medical Directors ensure that people are trained, safe, healthy and well wherever they work around the world, from a home office to remote locations. By hosting the Global Awards we are looking to discover and share best practices and innovation in these areas. In response to last year’s level of entries, we have also added four new categories this year to reflect the diversity of this complex and vital business topic.”

“We are delighted and thankful to have the support of our excellent panel of judges, each lending their expertise to our Awards, and look forward to reviewing and celebrating innovative entries.”

The global call for submissions is now open to all organisations, institutions and non-governmental organisations. The 2017 Global Duty of Care Awards will be presented in the following categories:

1. Innovation

3. Resilient Care

4. Communication

6. Remote Healthcare (new category)
