The kidnapping of an employee is a challenge for all involved, particularly because it is a sensitive and emotional crisis which affects many, from the hostage and their family to their colleagues and senior leadership. This section explains the duty of care organisations have towards their employees and outlines best practice in supporting and working with people affected by a kidnap incident.

Based on our experience of supporting hundreds of families over many years, Hostage International provides training and education services to all types of organisations in best practice in family support during and after the kidnap incident and workplace re-integration. You can learn more about these services here.
