Chubb Survey: Business Travelers Refuse Trips to Risky Locations

Nearly half of people surveyed would refuse to go on a business trip to a location they consider dangerous unless their employer provided them with emergency medical and other services, according to a survey by the Chubb Group of Insurance Companies.  

Twenty-three percent of business travelers indicated that they would refuse to go on the business trip; 21% said they would go but would refuse to go on the next trip; and 14% would go but look for a new job after returning.

Many employees, however, said they would take the trip if their employers provided access to one or more services.  Forty-two percent would go if their employer provided access to reliable emergency medical services, while almost half (47%) would travel if their employer provided pre-travel information about the country. Thirty-eight percent would take the trip if their employer provided access to legal assistance abroad.
