Post COVID-19 Travel Policy
You may need to consider an Interim Policy for Travel post Covid-19 as people begin to travel again. Good communication is needed to ensure booking and travelling criteria are well understood.
- Who will make the decision when staff can travel?
- Have you defined Essential v Non-Essential Travel? How will this be controlled?
- What other elements of the policy need changed e.g. spend caps?
- Mandate all travel must be booked either through BEYOND Business Travel or your company online booking tool so everything is tracked.
- Review specific differences to domestic v international travel around quarantine, health/medical care while travelling.
- Consider using risk rating standards in place for country level risk ratings?
- Do you need to limit the number of people travelling together or from one department?
- Does the policy cover individual responsibility to highlight underlying sickness?
- Is your HR system post COVID ready to gather additional travel information for safe travel?
