Travel of an internationally mobile workforce is becoming more common place throughout the world. This also includes travel throughout continental Africa and West Africa in particular. Employees are asked to travel from locations like Pointe Noire, Congo to Takaradi, Ghana and from Luanda, Angola to Douala, Cameroon and to do so in a quick and timely manner to accommodate business schedules and needs. However, travel throughout this region can be complicated and time consuming and pose security risks to the employees as well as the company. Human resource professionals are often asked to take an active role in minimizing security risks to the company’s most valuable asset – its employees!
In addition to the presentation, we had a lively discussion on innovative practices and strategies that companies use to facilitate the mobility of internationally mobile employees working in the West Africa region. Join the discussion in LinkedIn or on Facebook.
