Business Travel

Most organisations have requirements for corporate business travel of one sort or another, whether staff are making the occasional visit to a branch office or a supplier in the same country, or travelling overseas on a business trip or an international assignment – long-term, short-term, commuter or project-based.

For all these organisations, duty of care towards their business travellers is a key issue. Compliance with relevant laws and regulations is also high on the agenda. In today’s increasingly global business world, companies may not always be aware of the potential for non-compliance with, for example, immigration regulations, particularly where short business trips are concerned. This can pose risks for company and employee.

HR managers, global mobility managers, and those working in the business-travel departments of large multinational companies, as well as providers of professional relocation services, need to have up-to-date facts about the full spectrum of business-travel-related topics at their fingertips. These topics range from immigration, health and security (including official government travel advice and alerts), through accommodation suitable for business travellers (including hotels and serviced apartments), to transport (including air, rail and road).

Through practical advice and ‘how to’ guides, as well as articles, news, tools and other resources, this section covers all these topics, to help you support both your business travellers and international assignees and your business.

For detailed coverage of specific topics, see our Immigration, Global Health and Wellness, and Serviced Apartments sections. For details of organisations in the global mobility industry that support business travel, see our Directory . Read less
