As a responsible and forward-thinking Employer of Record (EOR) service provider, GoGlobal understands the importance of safeguarding our employees during business trips. To fulfil our obligations as the legal employer and provide comprehensive protection, GoGlobal makes sure all of our employees are covered by a Global Travel Insurance Policy. 

In this article, we explore the reasons behind this crucial decision and shed light on the benefits of such coverage.

Comprehensive coverage for peace of mind

Under GoGlobal’s Global Travel Insurance Policy, provided by our partner AIG, our employees benefit from extensive coverage. This policy ensures employees are protected 365 days a year, not only during business travel but also during personal trips tied to business purposes. Furthermore, the coverage extends to family members, adding an extra layer of security and peace of mind.

Automatic enrollment for new employees

At GoGlobal, we prioritize the well-being of our employees from day one. Hence, all new workers are automatically enrolled in the Global Travel Insurance Policy on their employment start date. 

This proactive approach guarantees our employees are adequately covered right from the beginning of their employment journey with us.

Addressing compliance concerns

Working outside of the country in which a worker is legally employed can lead to significant compliance issues. At GoGlobal, we prioritise compliance and make sure all necessary legal requirements are met. We urge our clients to promptly inform us if they have a worker who has been working outside their employment country for more than 30 days. 

By taking this preemptive step, we can address any compliance concerns and safeguard the legal status for every employee around the world. 

Differentiating from client policies

It’s important to understand that clients are not the legal employers of our workers. As such, any travel insurance policies that clients may have in place will not extend coverage to employees working for another legal employer, such as GoGlobal. 

By providing our own comprehensive Global Travel Insurance Policy, we eliminate any ambiguity or gaps in coverage, promoting the safety and well-being of our employees during their business travels.

Protecting your workforce – no matter where 

At GoGlobal, the safety and well-being of our employees are paramount. Through our mandatory Global Travel Insurance Policy, we provide comprehensive coverage, automatic enrollment for new employees, compliance support and clear differentiation from client policies. 

By taking these measures, we empower our people around the world to focus on their work, knowing that they are protected wherever their travels take them. With GoGlobal’s commitment to worker safety, our clients can rest assured knowing their workforce is taken care of.
