There is no question your company’s travel policies can help to drive your business further, but they can also be a valuable tool in attracting, engaging and retaining top talent.
In fact, according to a recent study, 84% said they would be interested in a job from a different firm that required similar travel levels if it offered a very attractive travel policy. What’s more, 83% said the new firm’s travel policy would be at least equally important to, if not more important than, new pay and responsibilities. Our research also found that travelers in cost-focused programs reported more traveler friction than their colleagues in traveler-focused programs.
In light of this, and particularly in today’s competitive job climate, there has never been a better time to focus on the benefits you can use to entice great talent. But which benefits should you focus on and what will deliver the best results for your company?
From comparing your policy to that of your competitors, to truly understanding your employees’ experience, this is a great place to start in making your travel program a solid tool for employee engagement.
