Whatever the case may be, if business travel is increasing within your organization, you need to take a good look at your corporate travel program to determine if it’s equipped to handle the uptick.
Define your budget
With increased travel will come increased expenses. Now is a great time to evaluate your corporate travel budget to determine what you’re comfortable spending for the year and how you will allocate that money.
Revisit your travel and expense policies
You should continuously check in on your travel and expense policies to ensure they are relevant and all-encompassing however, this is especially important when travel is becoming more prevalent within your organization.
Ensure your tools are efficient and effective
Make a list of all of the tools you currently use for travel management. Does each one serve a purpose? Are they all performing optimally? The right tools can offer increased efficiencies, better tracking and reporting and money savings.
