We are excited to announce the launch of Open for Business: A Corporate T&E Podcast Powered by TripActions.

The new weekly podcast will be a series of conversations about corporate travel and expenses, addressing the many T&E topics on the minds of business travelers, corporate travel managers and finance, operations and HR leaders. We sit down with big-picture thinkers and decision-makers from around the globe to talk about getting back to business travel safely, so we all are prepared for when work travel inevitably resumes.

Our first episode Building a Culture of Health at Home & On the Road explores the relationship between physical health, mental wellbeing, and the insights and productivity we have while traveling for work.

The corporate travel and expense community has a unique opportunity -- a universal pause on travel -- to reassess our relationship to wellness on an individual and organizational level. Our community of executive leaders, travel managers and road warriors are eager to get back out on the road, but want to do so in a way that supports their health, safety, well-being and productivity so they can leverage those critical in-person connections to build relationships, close deals, and drive growth.

Joining us this week is Marcey Rader, productivity coach and founder of Work Well. Play More!, Reiner Halbertsma, co-founder of travel wellness brand Local Time, and Matthew Holmann, founder of Simpila and co-founder of the Business Travel Wellbeing Community.

In this episode of Open for Business: A Corporate T&E Podcast, we’ll discuss:

  • Why physical and mental health are particularly important for business travelers
  • The relationship between wellness and productivity, at home and on the road
  • Why rest is essential to high performance
  • What travel managers and executives can do to create a culture where health and wellness flourish
  • How we can make the most of this pause in travel to reestablish healthy habits for the future

Each of these guests have intimate experience as business travelers, innovation managers, and/or corporate travel leaders. They have translated their learnings into products, workshops, and lessons that help others foster physical health, mental resilience, and productivity and insights on or between business trips. They also work directly with the travel managers and executives responsible for building company cultures that foster wellbeing for even their highest performers.

In the spirit of supporting the health of our corporate travel community, Local Time is offering a special 20% discount on its micronutrient supplements with the promo code “tripactions” at until May 1, 2020. Local Time also offers wholesale agreements for corporate accounts that want to boost the health and immunity of their traveling employees.
