TIME: 12:00 PM ET

Webinar Overview

What's true of business travel is also true of planning for it: There is no turning back; there is only moving forward.

Among finance leaders CFO Research surveyed in collaboration with TripActions about business travel, leading priorities include improving visibility into travel spend and improving employees' experiences with managing travel. These priorities are likely to remain top of mind as companies prepare to ramp up business travel, and as they look to finance leaders to determine how best to do so.

During this webinar, we will discuss:
  • What persistent challenges undermine finance leaders' efforts to streamline business travel,
  • What considerations finance leaders need to keep in mind as they review and update business travel policies and procedures going forward, and
  • How finance leaders can achieve full visibility into and provide valuable analysis of employees' business travel data to inform their companies' decisions about planning for future business travel.
