Global medical and security risk services company International SOS has signed a new partnership agreement with the Forum for Expatriate Management (FEM); International SOS will now be the organisation’s exclusive ‘Global Medical and Security Risk Management Partner’.
The partnership will see both parties combine their wide-ranging industry expertise to drive a proactive and transformational agenda for the protection of the mobile workforce. Together, they will aim provide insight, debate, innovation and thought leadership for the benefit of mobility managers and their organisations worldwide.
“International SOS’ expertise in medical and security risks is invaluable to global mobility specialists in our ever-changing world of risks,” said Claire Tennant-Scull, Global Head of Content and Events Director at FEM. “Our partnership will advance practical advice to our members and thought leadership. Initially, we will be working together to enhance our events and provide members with essential advice and information. Our delegates travel from far and wide to attend our events and move their assignees and business travellers across the globe, so they will benefit enormously from this exciting partnership. Going forward, we will also be producing groundbreaking insights for our audience in this specialist area. We look forward to rolling out this new partnership and its benefits to our members in the coming months.”
The global partnership will be managed out of FEM’s and International SOS’ London offices. Its initial focus will be on Europe (specifically London and Amsterdam) and key cities in the US (Dallas in 2019) and Asia (Singapore and Hong Kong).
Kai Boschmann, Chief Marketing and Communications Officer at International SOS, added: “We are pleased to launch this exclusive new partnership. International SOS and FEM have shared objectives in creating debate and providing insight to raise standards in the protection of the mobile workforce. Partnering will enable us to combine our expertise and provide professionals, who manage international assignees with the latest thinking, research and best practice through FEM’s member platforms.”
