Duty of Care is a cross-cutting division of IRC’s Global Human Resources department which focuses on the safety, health, and wellbeing of the organization’s workforce and workplaces.

The Duty of Care team supports four key functions for the IRC:

  • Supporting the psychosocial wellbeing of IRC employees through managing the organization’s staff counseling and psychosocial support services and through providing education and training to support resilience.
  • Providing guidance to IRC leaders and managers following critical incidents to ensure that best practices in staff care are utilized to support employees and their families.
  • Overseeing the IRC’s Staff Health and worksite health and safety policies and services.
  • Serving as a resource to IRC leaders around psychosocial topics at the worksite level.

This public website was designed to enable IRC staff and their families to easily access services and resources related to psychosocial wellbeing and resilience. The website is multilingual, ultra-low bandwidth, and available without a login.
For information and policies around Staff Health and worksite health and safety, please visit our page on RescueNet. Note that a login is required to access Staff Health resources.
