If your company requires employees to fly abroad frequently, ensuring their safety is a top priority. No matter where they go, there are always risks, so you need to do everything within your power as a company to protect them.
Knowing where your employees will be during all times is one of the best ways to ensure their security. Creating an itinerary for them to follow and staying in contact at all times can mitigate any risky situations. Before your team jumps on a plane or books a hotel, make sure you have all the appropriate contact information for them. You should also keep track of the contact details for any hotel, venue, or business they may be visiting during the trip.
While your travel booking team may be responsible for much of what goes on while your employees are traveling, you also want to provide adequate training before each trip. Depending on the situation and where your team is traveling to, a briefing to raise awareness of what they can expect will help them take charge of their own safety.
While some places are safer to travel than others, travel hubs in populated cities are quickly becoming targets in today’s world. Your team should be able to provide a risk rating and assessment to determine security measures and manage employee safety.
