The Case for Duty of Care

Duty of Care Is More Important Than Ever  

Your people are your organization’s most important asset. And whether they’re across the world on business or across town for a meeting, duty of care means you have a legal and moral responsibility to know where they are and to care for their well-being during an emergency. In an increasingly complex world, it isn’t getting any easier. In fact, it’s becoming more unpredictable and more challenging.  

Providing duty of care takes more than just tracking what offices employees work from, or knowing when they’re travelling or not. You need a robust risk management plan in place to effectively respond in the event of an emergency.  

SAP Concur recently conducted a survey of 200 travel managers, HR leaders, and security, risk and compliance professionals across enterprise companies to gauge the current state of risk management and duty of care programs in various organizations. The results reveal significant blind spots and inform what steps you need to take to effectively care for your people.
