advo’s latest online edition of advocate, where we keep you up to date with the latest advo news and take a closer look at some of the stand out issues over the last few months, is now available for you to read.
In a packed edition we republish an article which first appeared in Health and Protection magazine. advo’s Colin Boxall has personal experience of state and private healthcare both there and in the UK. Here he looks at the differences between the two systems and asks if lessons can be learned for the UK.
We also feature the second instalment of our look at outsourcing vital parts of the business. We look at HR where, if approached in the right way, an SME can effectively have their own HR department just like their PLC counterparts. advo hr, in a second feature, looks at the grey between professional and personal lives in relation to the use of social media and gives tips for businesses.
We include an exclusive interview with United Healthcare Global’s Chief Medical Officer looking at the reasons why four in ten international placements fail.
Wider features include a closer look at pension scandals. Recent retirees are likely to have been approached about potential financial scams in the past few months. We include tips to help avoid them.
In medical news we feature the ‘drop the ball’ campaign by our insurer partner, Bupa raising the awareness of testicular cancer.
In advo news October was a fantastic month winning awards at two of the most prestigious industry events. This was particularly pleasing as the awards encompass our people, approach to client service and use of our technology. Our Employee Benefits Team was singled out as the ‘Best’.
