Duty of care, or the ability of a corporate travel and expense program to maintain the safety and security of its employees, is more important than ever before. And although safety and risk management has been thrust into the spotlight with COVID-19, corporate travel programs always had a responsibility to ensure traveler safety, employee health, and the safety of non-traveling employees.

TripActions Academy Course 25: Incident Response & Duty of Care in Corporate Travel covers everything you need to know about corporate responsibilities and best practices when it comes to employee safety and duty of care.

What is the TripActions Academy? It is a free series of courses that corporate travel program managers can take to strengthen their foundation of corporate travel and expense management skills, learn best practices, and bring new focus to their organization’s corporate T&E program. The Academy’s goal is to provide access to anyone and everyone that wants a high-level overview of corporate travel and expense fundamentals and user- and technology-first programs, policies, and tech.

**Course 25: Incident Response & Duty of Care in Corporate Travel **

TripActions Academy Course 25: Incident Response & Duty of Care in Corporate Travel starts by exploring the three main areas where duty of care has a role. It also highlights incident response and the responsibility that travel teams have to stay abreast of global events that could affect employee travel.. To do this effectively, travel and safety teams often work with third party companies to ensure they are kept up to speed of all incidents that happen around the world. The course covers the best tools to employ as well as metrics and best practices to use to determine whether your corporate travel program is prepared… before an incident occurs.

The TripActions team built products specifically to handle the complications that came with the global travel shutdown in March 2020. These tools, however, can be used throughout the year to keep track of travelers, communicate with them immediately, and ensure your company is providing the highest level of duty of care possible.
