With the summer season in full swing, managers can benefit and bring a fresh perspective to the workplace routine by providing unfettered access to outdoor activities, such as team building, picnics in the park, sport activities or company barbeques. Aside from travelling for pleasure, business people also seize this season by networking, learning new skills and travelling more for business matters.
Team buildings exercises are opportunities for building strong relationships and to improve employee communication and morale. However, there is always the possibility of someone getting hurt while taking part in these types of activities. Accidents that occur during team building exercises are considered occupational accidents and therefore the company’s liability extends to these types of events. Recently, more and more teambuilding organizations have developed programs that are built around outdoor activities. Physically demanding outdoor activities, such as rock climbing, hikes and paintballing can result in a variety of injuries and the treatment costs may vary depending on the complexity of the injury.
Business trips can become a financial burden for employees, even more if an accident occurs. World Health Organization specialists estimate that 18%-24% of deaths among travelers in foreign countries are caused by accidents. People consider that travel insurance provides enough coverage in a foreign country, unfortunately, travel insurance is meant to cover just short-term emergency medical treatment until the patient is in a condition to return home and to obtain further treatment there.
On a different level, international health insurance covers treatment for both emergencies and health situations that might occur due to pre-existing conditions.
Clients need to have a high understanding of what ‘healthy employee – happy employee’ means. A satisfied employee will take care of your company, but first you need to take care of them and find a manner to motivate them. With today’s’ medical costs increasing at twice the rate of inflation, individuals purchasing health insurance end up paying much higher prices in order to cover the administrative costs and risks.
Health insurance is a benefit that every employee expects from the company that they are working for. International health insurance offers your employees cover for hospitalization, check-ups, treatment for both emergencies and health situations that might occur during or after work hours.
