Plans that meet the needs of a global workforce

When you’re sending employees on assignment around the world, it’s vital their plans provide the right cover. As AXA’s global healthcare specialists, we’re uniquely placed to harness our in-country expertise around the world – so wherever your business is based, however complex your needs, we can put together a plan to meet your requirements. 

For employees based in places such as Saudi Arabia, Oman, Kuwait, Bahrain, Qatar, UAE, the Netherlands, Switzerland or Australia, we can arrange an international health plan that’s locally compliant and we’ll use the local knowledge of our in-country experts to ensure your plan stays up to date no matter how often the regulations change.

Helping employees secure their future

When you have an international workforce, it can be time consuming to find a benefits package that works in every country. Life insurance, income protection and savings plans can be particularly complicated  – especially when you factor in the different legislation, eligibility requirements, retirement systems and employer benefits strategy in each country. 

For global businesses based out of the European Economic Area or Switzerland, AXA can help fill that gap. With portable international life, disability and savings solutions the plans are the perfect complement to our healthcare benefits, and can help you offer the ideal employee benefits package. Plus, they can be completely bespoke to match your needs.
