What’s Happening in the TripActions Community This Week

As the industry prepares for a gradual return to business travel this month, they are thinking through the nitty gritty and discussing the details around best practices that keep traveling employees safe, healthy, and productive.

Thought leaders and travel managers around the world have discussed challenges and shared new ideas in the TripActions Community while sharing their personal strategies and plans in our private Office Hours and Workshops. They’re also tuning into webinars and podcasts where those on the front lines of this shift outline what to keep in mind. For example, the latest episode of Open for Business: A Corporate T&E Podcast Powered by TripActions explores the new responsibilities that HR and People teams have as organizations prepare to resume business travel.

Let’s get ready to see one another again and reconnect in person in the safest way possible. Join us -- we’d love to hear from you.

New Mask Policies for U.S. Airlines

Most U.S. airlines made announcements this month outlining their plans to keep passengers safe and the in-flight experience as sanitary as possible. In many cases, this includes a mandate that passengers wear face masks for the duration of the flight. This chat not only highlights each airlines’ instructions, but a discussion around how it will be enforced.
