A wise man once said that ‘if you can’t measure something, then you can’t manage it’.
Having a travel policy is good governance and communicating it is common sense
When you mix the inevitably emotive topic of travel and accommodation procurement with individuals who operate without a business travel policy, who buy from uncontrolled sources, in a way that goes unreported and is claimed on non-standard expense forms, it is no wonder that business travel expenses can quickly become a problem.
In a recent Key Travel survey*, almost a quarter of respondents said they didn't have or didn't know if they had, a company travel policy.
Clearly having a policy is good governance and then communicating it is common sense. No matter the size of your organisation, our experience can help you to:
If you do not already have a corporate travel policy, we can help you to write one, incorporating who should travel when, how, and with what authority (prior to any booking!). We can also assist in revising your business travel policy if your current one is out of date.
Our Account Managers can help promote the business travel expense policy amongst travel bookers under agreed rules, and Key Travel's consultants will ensure that any bookings made are in line with your company travel policy; whether that is ensuring you use the train for short journeys, or booking Premium classes for your VIPs.
* Survey conducted amongst 997 respondents in December 2011.
