Jelf International launches international healthcare guides
The first two guides, available at http://www.jelfgroup.com/site/international/knowledge-centre, cover the destinations of Singapore and Nigeria and are free to download.
Doug Rice, director of Jelf International, said, “In our experience, business owners and HR decision makers don’t want to be overloaded with generic international healthcare information. They require detailed country-specific intelligence to help them make critical judgments and recommendations which will impact the future of their organisation. These guides are the first two in a planned series that aims to meet this need.”
This guide covers Singapore’s economy and make-up of the labour force as well as expanding on the city-state’s existing healthcare provision and how policies can be tailored to meet the requirements of both local nationals and expatriates.
This looks at the challenges inherent in sending employees to Nigeria and the fairly limited access to & lsquo;Western-style’ medicine available in the country. Topics covered include the environment, risks, facilities and safeguards, ensuring out-of-country treatment is available when necessary.
Rice concluded, “As international employee benefits becomes increasingly complex, the option to expand overseas can be a double-edged sword for some employers. These guides, part of our continued commitment to support international clients, aim to give employers clarity of thought in terms of meeting their own obligations and their employees’ needs and expectations.”
