MedFit (HEALTH CHECKS) services

Companies operating outside their home country often face new health challenges. Large amount of literatures estimate that one out every three failed international employee assignments is due to medical or family issues, leading to huge direct and indirect cost to companies. 

Similarly many of the health problems suffered by frequent international business travellers are preventable if identified early prior to deployment.  That’s why companies need to make sure their employees are medically fit for international work assignments and are properly supported while they are on such assignment.
