Event planned to support North East Businesses looking to travel into new markets

North East-based companies, Travel Bureau and Athena Risk, have joined forces to host a series of free workshops which will demonstrate how implementing a robust travel safety, health and security strategy will assist companies safeguarding their employees when travelling on business and preparing them for in different environments and cultures.

Held at 9am on 25 May at Newcastle’s Barclays House, the Travel Safe session will offer businesses an insight into the potential issues associated with travelling overseas, especially in emerging and developing markets, how to minimise the risk to personnel, and what employers should consider to fulfil their duty of care and the business benefits associated to policy implementation.

Travel Safe is an opportunity for NE businesses to prepare themselves for a predicted 50% growth in mobile employees by 2020 and is in response to increased enquiries from businesses looking to ensure the safety and wellbeing of their mobile workforce and protect their business reputation.

The workshop coincides with the launch of a joint venture between corporate travel management specialists, Travel Bureau and risk management consultancy, Athena Risk. The two businesses have joined forces to launch the Travel Safe service, which will provide organisations with a combination of travel management services, risk mitigation expertise and state of the art technology designed to ensure that travellers stay safe and informed throughout their journey.
