Hidden Costs to Your Company and the Efficiency of it All
So, you’re a business. And you have to send Joe on a sales trip.
It might be natural to assume the costs for Joe’s trip are just: flight, hotel, car, and meals. But you’re a smart business, so you realize that that is not strictly true.
Realistically, businesses also spend other employees’ time, and company money, on whoever booked Joe’s trip, the accounting and possibly the HR’s departments’ oversight of the trips and those expenses and anyone else who might be involved. Of course this is made worse by the opportunity costs related to the work the other employees could be doing—rather than being responsible for their role in Joe’s trip.
And we’ll say it. Companies that handle their own travel are unlikely to get the best deals, negotiate through fees (and penalties) and are overall more likely to invest more time in booking Joe’s travel than necessary.
This is where Safe Harbors Business Travel comes in.
We handle every detail of corporate travel. We’ve been doing it for 30 years, and we’re very good at it. We save our clients money and our service is pretty spectacular.
