HR’s checklist for prioritising people in business travel

As a human resource professional, you’re acutely aware of the coronavirus pandemic’s impact on the people in your company. You’re dealing with lower morale, fragmentation of the workforce and concerns about what work -- and life -- will look like moving forward.

Amidst all of this, your role has likely expanded.

In the past, business travel responsibilities traditionally fell squarely on the shoulders of the travel manager, with oversight from finance or procurement. Now, with a heightened focus on traveller well-being and risk management, the focus has become more about people.

And that means you’re now a stakeholder.

In a recent Egencia survey of 130 travel managers and others responsible for managed travel, 42 per cent said human resources are now involved in defining new requirements for travellers.

Download this checklist and guide to learn more about:

  • Evolving concerns in business travel and how human resources is playing a larger part
  • How to answer “when should our employees get back on the road?”
  • What travellers need so they can book quickly and within policy
  • How to keep your employees empowered, informed and supported on the road
  • Resources available to help you support travellers on return

As companies re-evaluate their business travel programmes, traveller safety and well-being are emerging as top priorities. Business leaders are relying on human resources to identify potential risks and consider employee needs so they can feel confident about their next work trip.
