Duty of Care in a Dangerous World

This article from CNBC.com is a must-read for anyone with an interest in international business. Prominent CEOs from around the world are genuinely worried that civilization may be headed for a cross-the-Rubicon moment like the one that led to the Second World War.


CEOs like Jamie Dimon and Fredrick Kempe have much to say about the threat that Russia and China pose to the world economy. It's a good read, and what they're saying is of vital importance. But you know what doesn't get mentioned in this piece? The safety and well-being of those employed by global corporations who, while on overseas assignment, may find themselves caught in crossfire, dodging rockets, or even being taken hostage by rival factions, not to mention (and they don't) being impacted by the growing number of natural catastrophes brought on by climate change.


Concern for employees and their families placed in harm's way has a name: Duty of Care. If you're not familiar with it, you're not alone. It's been a massively under-discussed topic up to now, but that may be about to change. OADA Mobility's head of Operations, Jim Weiss, is organizing a seminar on Duty of Care under the auspices of New York City SHRM, tentatively scheduled for a date TBD February 2024. Whether virtually or in person, it's an event you won't want to miss.
