Travel Risk Management | Statistics
Despite global unrest, business travel continues to increase and according to a study released by the GBTA, 79% of all business travellers stated their job-related ‘travel experience’ affected their overall job satisfaction. A major factor in travel management is business traveller safety. Employees tend to travel further from home and are exposed to risks such as terrorism, assault, theft, illness, injury, and other crimes, often with no pre-travel or in-country advice.
Employers have a ‘Duty of Care’ to ensure the health and safety of their travelling employees, lone workers and mobile workforce. It is critical that appropriate policies and travel risk management strategies are in place to manage any potential issues and mitigate risk.
