New Year, New Mindset

business travel, mental health and well-being
listen now

Goodness knows this past year has been hard on everyone’s mental health and well-being, but maybe it’s now time to consider those two things more seriously when we finally emerge from this dreadful pandemic.

In Episode 13 of the BTN Europe podcast, psychologist Dr Lucy Rattrie joins our own COO, Dave Bishop, Carolyn Pearson of Maiden Voyage and Nike’s Daniel Tallos. They discuss whether companies sending their travellers on business trips consider their mental health and well-being enough and the effect of the pandemic on people stopped from travelling who would normally love to travel on business.

We discuss how to ensure mental health and well-being and whether companies need to invest more in this area. We also look at how well-being and duty of care are converging and why new restrictions mean we might be taking fewer business trips. We also learn about holistic bingo, fake commutes and other ways to improve your mental health during the Covid crisis.

To help you navigate the changes of business travel, we’ve created the brand-new Traveller Toolkit. This invaluable online resource is packed full of easy-to-use guides and checklists for every stage of every journey. We detail exactly what you need to know and do before, during and after your trip.

You’ll also find innovative and interactive virtual trips, which walk you through each step of  being at the airport, on the train and in the hotel. You can even check the travel restrictions and health status of your destination with our comprehensive COVID-19 Country Tracker, updated five times daily to ensure you have the very latest information to help keep you and your travellers safe.

Travel is changing. But with common sense and a good TMC behind you, travellers should have the confidence to once again take to the skies. It’ll soon be business as (un)usual.
