Why international benefits?
Once upon a time, it was only the major corporates that ventured into global markets. Today, many smaller organisations are operating internationally. In fact, 75% of companies expect their international assignments to increase or remain the same over the next two years.
Living and working overseas can bring many benefits to both your company and your employees. It can also pose challenges – and that’s where we can help:
- Fulfil your duty of care
We can help you meet your obligations and avoid penalties by arranging appropriate cover, so your staff can access quality medical care when they need it.
- Complex cover; simplified
International Private Medical Insurance (IPMI) can be complex. We can help you understand foreign legislation, and help you source compliant solutions.
- Get the best from your benefits
We can help you to maximise your international benefits, whilst ensuring you retain your key staff.
How our international benefits consultants can help
Our specialist international benefits team help employers source and manage the benefit packages of their employees living and working overseas. Whether you’re looking to review an existing expatriate health insurance scheme, or conduct a global benefits audit, we can help.

Business travel insurance
If your employees suffer unexpected difficulties when travelling for business purposes, you want to ensure that they are covered. But how do you know if you need travel insurance or international private medical insurance?
Group scheme leaver service
