Building a corporate travel policy.
A corporate travel policy is a tool designed to help both employees and company executives make effective decisions. It explains what you expect from traveling employees and what they can expect in return. Some types of corporate policies are simple. For example, your company allows X number of sick days each year. Travel policies? Not so simple. Making travel arrangements and living the plan involves any number of variables. There are contingencies that have to be considered. And your company has a Duty of Care that must be observed to keep your people safe and secure on the road, even in an emergency. Your travel policy has to cover all these bases. The introduction should explain why your company has a travel policy and how it benefits your business travelers. Remind people that they represent your firm while they’re traveling, so their behavior reflects on your brand as well as themselves.
