Multinational employers face pandemic challenges that are unique. Explore with other global companies the business imperatives and benefits redesigns needed to navigate: complex business travel with frequently-revised policies; an uptick in behavioral health concerns due to families divided by closed borders; and, access to care impeded in countries ill-equipped to provide virtual care.

As the world enters year two, COVID-19 remains a worldwide issue with a fundamental need for reviewing global benefits and the policies and laws native to multiple countries.

  • Telehealth – continuing to remove the barriers to care permanently
  • Mental Health and Well-being – do they differ from domestic plans and, if so, how?
  • Business Travel falls into a different bucket – ALL business travel must ensure a “Duty of Care,” which places multinationals in more complicated situations than others on sheer geographical scope alone.

 Learning Objectives of This Program:

  • Learn from a panel of industry leaders how their organizations are adapting to the global pandemic.

  • Hear how employees are accessing care globally and being mindful of cultural norms when seeking treatment and care.

  • Get real-time data around how telemedicine and mental health are impacting employees globally, not just within the United States.

  • Understand best practices for designing policies that will address employees traveling, what to be mindful of when travel resumes and hear projections for when the challenges associated with travel will relax.

  • Leave with a sense of confidence around what to anticipate for the upcoming year in terms of global benefits; have a better understanding of what peers are doing from a telehealth, business travel, and general post-pandemic response strategy; and, how to plan for the road ahead.


  • David Livitt – National Practice Leader, Business Traveler Services, Global Tax Network (GTN)
