The COVID-19 pandemic has intensified the growing corporate focus on employee wellbeing. However, while many travel managers routinely talk with their stakeholders across the organization on topics such as policy, cost, and traveler service, only a minority engage stakeholders on the topic of employee wellbeing. And when wellbeing is on the agenda, discussions tend to be limited to the business trip itself – rather than considering the wider impact of the trip.
Fortunately, a new white paper from American Express Global Business Travel entitled “On the Road to Wellbeing” sets out an actionable five-step approach to help travel managers put employee wellbeing at the heart of the travel program. Our aim is to elevate traveler physical and mental health and provide useful talking points that travel managers can use to initiate conversations with their peers across the business on this important topic.
