SHAPE OF THE FUTURE
what type of business
travel will survive
Bill gates has said that 50% of business travel would go following the pandemic, but he would say that, wouldn’t he? His company, Microsoft, has a very powerful alternative to business travel in Teams, after all. Yet many companies have used the virtual standstill of business travel due to Covid to take stock of what parts of business travel are essential.
You could argue that many businesses have survived well enough without travelling at all.
Companies are now having to focus more closely on what types of business travel will be allowed to come back. Will training and internal meetings be forced to go virtual and is that a good thing? Are the days of day trips numbered?
The cost of a trip, whether that is in terms of funds, planet or people, is going to be increasingly under scrutiny in the future and travel managers will need to educate bookers and travellers about just how their business travel fits into the organisation’s overall strategy.
In this podcast, EY’s Karen Hutchings, Nike’s Daniel Tallos, our own Gray Dawes COO Dave Bishop and Festive Road’s Paul Tilstone, together with regular host Mark Frary, discuss what the shape of future business travel will be.
