A 5-Step Guide to Sustainable Business Travel
Step 1: Think digital first.
“We learned a ton during the pandemic. With minimal travel, we performed exceptionally well. We had more C-level meetings, faster turnaround times, better access to customers. And we don’t want to lose that. It’s digital first, and that should be our mentality moving forward.”
“We call it the digital HQ because in this all-digital, work-from-anywhere world, your digital headquarters is more important than your physical headquarters. Every company needs a digital HQ to connect its employees, customers, and partners and thrive in a work-from-anywhere world.”
Companies expect business travel to decrease 20% between 2019 and 2023.
