We’re excited to share with our readers a link to a USA Today article, “Companies try efforts to protect workers in world’s danger zones,” which features information about managing risks for assignees in so-called dangerous locations.  And, look for the quote from our own Mariana Villa da Costa, a regular contributor on the blog, who also wrote an article in September, 2009 about managing assignments in dangerous locations.

Congratulations, Mariana!
