Los Angeles, California – February 29, 2016. IMG GlobalSecur, a leading global security consulting firm, is proud to announce an important post to its customer-facing blog on the issue of overseas employee monitoring. The IMG GlobalSecur blog is meant to explain employee security issues and monitoring opportunities in a straightforward manner, suitable for busy human resources managers or senior executives who manage an employee workforce abroad.
“Employee monitoring can have a bad sound to it, given the more common use in the United States as a way to keep employees from doing bad things such as stealing supplies,” explained Chris Hagon, CEO of IMG GlobalSecur. “Our use of the term ’employee monitoring’ has a completely different, international context: that of being able to have the employee check in with the home base, get assistance, and perform other functions (or receive other services) in a completely transparent and helpful way. Our post explains these in more detail.”
To read the informational blog post on overseas employee monitoring, please feel free to visit the website. Persons interested in exploring overseas employee monitoring issues are urged to use the website to reach out for a security consultant, as every situation is unique.
Employee Overseas Monitoring: Win / Win
Whereas employee monitoring in the United States context can have a negative connotation, usually meaning that the employer is snooping on the employees in order to prevent issues such as theft on the job, employee monitoring and an overseas situation, is usually a win/win situation. An example is when an employee overseas confronts a medical emergency. Both that employee and her employer are motivated to take the appropriate action, and make intelligent decisions in a situation that may not be the same as if this event happened in Dallas, Texas, or Chicago, Illinois. Another example is when an employee or a group of employees confronts an emergency overseas. The recent tragic earthquake in Kathmandu, Nepal, is an example of this type of crisis. Our employee monitoring service can both alert employees of situations as they unfold, as well as inform folks back home, including relatives, of the situation. A final example concerns political unrest. The system is able to alert employees of impending political turmoil, and in many situations the employees can take the appropriate action in a more timely fashion.
