Business travelers are increasingly aware of the challenges they face when leaving the office. A study by American Express Global Business Travel and the Association for Corporate Travel Executives found that more than anything else, today's business travelers want a better sense of security when traveling on behalf of their organizations.
Research believe this growth is part of a long-term, sustained trend. Concern over security is growing at a significantly faster rate than concerns about other topics including work-life balance issues, traveler-centric technologies and alternative suppliers.
For travel managers, developing a travel safety plan is essential to meet your duty of care obligations. By preparing in advance and partnering with customer-focused providers like GroundLink, you can ensure that employees feel safe and supported when they travel for business – enabling them to be more productive.
