Complexities of Business Travel: #10 How do I track my business travellers during their journey and make sure they are safe?

Complexities of Business Travel: #10 How do I track my business travellers during their journey and make sure they are safe?

During these testing times, it is now more important than ever to ensure traveller safety is at the utmost priority. In the first part of our recent Traveller Safety and Wellbeing series, we reported that the Harvard Business Review recently quoted, “The most pressing issue for businesses today is the health and safety of their workforce amid the Covid-19 crisis”. 

It is vitally important that all businesses, small and large, have robust procedures in place to protect their employees from potential risks both here in the UK as well as abroad, but how do you know if you’re doing enough as an organisation? The pandemic has heightened the importance to work in partnership with a Travel Management Company (TMC)  (or at least trial one) which is prepared to face any challenges with you.

Here, at Good Travel Management, our Duty of Care solution GT Assist includes all the essentials a business with travelling employees needs to fulfil its duty of care responsibilities. Traveller tracking through GT Safeguard means organisations can instantly locate all employees in the event of a crisis. Powered by a mobile application, the product maps current risks with current travellers’ locations to provide a proactive risk management solution allowing companies to immediately identify any at-risk employees, leaving them to communicate with travellers via the application.

Crisis management processes provide reassurance to travellers, their family, and their employers when they have been affected by a crisis. Here at Good Travel Management, we quickly and proactively locate any travellers that could be impacted, agree on any support required whilst defining a plan to get them home, keeping everyone in the loop on our progress to assist with employee wellbeing.

Today, with vaccine rollouts being provided throughout the world, this opens the potential of enhanced travel amongst nations in the future; and companies must be ready to manage travel risks, safety concerns and increased directives affecting their travelling workforce.
