[Prepare for what's next] - What does "essential business travel" mean for your organization?
I've been listening to numerous conversations involving travel managers/travel buyers over the past weeks. One of the first points that come up when talking about business travel resuming -beyond health and safety recommendations, obviously- is: "we are considering to resume with essential travel".
However, I reckon essential business travel may resonate differently for each corporation. Are we talking about travel that contributes to driving growth for the company? About executives back on the road? About something else?
Isn't it essentially about understanding what the most critical reasons for travel are to your business? The latter will differ -and I'd suggest the criteria metrics should be a topic of discussion within corporations.
I'd love to hear your thoughts!
