What is International SOS sick leave policy? How many sick days do you get per year?
If you get sick there's a chance you get demoted and put back on the casual roster, even if your full-time benefits are still active. If you get hurt working for a different employer your disability coverage does not apply. No real sick days unless you're office staff.
They used to have a strict interview process but that slowly went away. Quite often they just match resumes to job descriptions and it's off to the races!
Attempting to train, improve safety, and communication on-site. There is very much a culture of "don't ask, don't tell" when it comes to incompetency.
None. Company culture is at best bland and undescriptive, at worst it is a game of musical chairs or snakes and ladders. Very much a "what did you do for me yesterday" kinda place.
If you were in charge, what would you do to make International SOS a better place to work?
More mock drills, more rotation of regular staff between various sites, more training is done at head office.
There is none. You get paid various rates depending on what site you are at. I had 4 different positions and was underpaid quite often. Payroll is good if you can catch their mistakes early.
Health benefits, disability coverage. If you get hurt working for a different employer all your disability is void. The benefit package may seem decent at first but there is little to no guarantee you'll lose your position and be out of work for several months.
What advice would you give the CEO of International SOS about how to improve the company?
