You’ve figured out the pricing, logistics, timing, and even the perks, but what happens when an employee is in danger? In the case that an employees’ trip goes downhill, you will need to have the appropriate procedures in place. Traveling with Dav El|BostonCoach is being one step closer towards ensuring your employee’s safety.

To ensure that your employees get to and from their travel destinations, let Dav El|BostonCoach bolster your corporate travel plan.
In terms of a crisis, your employee will need access to several resources. First, your employee will need the destination’s emergency numbers. They will also need multiple points of contact within your company dedicated to their travel needs. Furthermore, your company will need to dedicate an employee to watch the political climate of the country during the trip. The in-country traveler will have access to local news, but may lose focus of the political climate while doing business.
Employee needs are a top priority. Does your employee have high-blood pressure or allergies? It is imperative to have a record of these needs. This information will affect their accommodations, where they can eat, and what activities they can do.
In the case that your employee is in need of medical support, your traveler profile will be extremely beneficial. Make sure your employee has the following documents to expedite medical care, if necessary:
- A passport copy
- Their primary health insurance information
- Their visa (if applicable)
- A copy of their prescriptions
What happens when your employee reaches their destination? Do they hail a taxi, take a car service, or even take the train? Every possible method of transportation should be vetted during the planning phase of the trip.
Duty of Care
It is common to seek a duty of care policy from your accommodation and transportation partners, but have you also provided a duty of care to your employees? It is essential to reiterate every way your company will care for employees during corporate trips.
From health procedures to providing comfort, your employees need to trust that your corporate travel plan puts them first.
Local Laws and Customs
Depending on your employee’s destination, local laws can be unpredictable. For example, in several countries, drinking is illegal. Ensure that your employees are aware and avoid unknowingly breaking the law.
No matter where your employees go, know that Dav El|BostonCoach is there to take care of them.
