How to Plan for Travel Emergencies
Travel and events management company ATPI published a guide outlining how to prepare a formal travel emergency response plan by working closely with your travel management company. I found a really interesting part of the guide to be how they define risk. In a globalized world, more and more of our businesses’ operations are taking place in emerging markets but unexpected disasters and crisis situations that arise from political or social events are also common. Ultimately, emergencies can occur suddenly in areas we previously considered as relatively contained and current events prove this to be true.
The report talks about how emergency plans are only as effective as an organization makes them to be. What do you think? Is it each organization’s responsibility to have a detailed response plan in place? Or can you lean on a travel management company to do that for you?
