It’s the Economy, Stupid:
Travel and Expense at a Critical Inflection Point

It’s the Economy, Stupid:
Travel and Expense at a Critical
Inflection Point

Demand for business travel has returned almost as quickly as governments could say “no Covid test required.” But with inflation rising, corporate spending that was already under the microscope is getting a double dose of scrutiny. 

Here’s the problem: As the cost of business travel increases — both in terms of dollars spent and environmental impact — so does the risk of its being trimmed back in corporate budgets. Corporate leaders and employees must consider travel as more than a line item and position it as a strategic, holistic investment that incentivizes, motivates, and drives employee retention for the organization.

In this webinar, TripActions, ClimateAi, and Skift will discuss the state of business travel and how changes to work culture make it even more critical to driving corporate growth. Learn how travel, card, and expense solutions enable flexible and adaptable travel policies that control program costs and empower employees to spend responsibly.

What You’ll Learn

  • Corporate travel and expense management trends for 2022 and 2023
  • How companies can save on travel and expense program costs through dynamic policies and automated expense management
  • Why travel has become essential as a company-wide investment strategy vs. a siloed department with a separate line item
