The True Value of Good International Employee Benefits

Help your employees feel at home away from home

The allure of a new life in an exciting new country and culture can quickly fade if your employees and their families aren’t helped to really feel at home. With the value of the right international employee benefits Sure, you can organise their move, help secure school places and introduce them to their local expat community, but ensuring your employees feel as safe abroad as they do at home can be what really defines their new surroundings as home and makes them more likely to settle in for the long-term, or maybe even forever.

Today, a solid benefit package can help you not only attract but also retain the right talent for your business. It should encompass access to high-quality healthcare and offer financial peace of mind, with protection plans that secure the future for employees and their loved ones, should anything unfortunate happen.

The right employee benefits

The right value of the international employee benefits package can be difficult to find for businesses with staff who either live and work in one country as foreign nationals or travel extensively in connection with their work. We make it easy by offering health, life and income protection all under one roof.

The plans

Global health cover

Our international private medical insurance provides access to the best doctors and healthcare professionals, and the freedom to choose the hospital or medical facility where treatment is taken. High cover limits up to US$5m are available.

Full cancer cover, medical evacuation and full in-patient cover come as standard on all our plans. Optical and dental benefits, well-being boosts, enhanced maternity and temporary USA cover are some of the ways you can tailor our health plans and we can cover dependents, too.


Global life cover

The global life plan provides up to US$2m cover. If an employee is diagnosed with an illness that reduces life expectancy to 12 months or less, the life benefit is paid out early to the employee, so they are free to manage their estate, and to enjoy time with friends and family, knowing that their financial future is secure.

Plans are annually renewable up to age 70 and offer the option to add accident benefit cover, which would provide an additional pay-out if an employee dies as result of an accident, whether in or outside of work.


Global income protection

Our global income protection plan will pay employees a fixed income benefit, in the event they become unable to work due to injury or illness. This could save your business the expense of paying long-term sick pay.

Income protection covers up to US$200,000 and we offer automatic free cover limits for 6+ employees.
