Organisations have a new challenge at their hands – imagining tomorrow’s world of business travel and building its foundations today. With ever more rapid societal and technological changes at play, Travel Managers must listen closely to their employees to understand innovation potential for their corporate travel programmes and keep close to tech advancements to build an adaptable, sustainable and human-centred framework for business travel.
In this series, we’re talking to SAP’s own Travel Leader, Dirk Gerdom, who is shaking up the status quo and embracing the new world of travel from the top down.
With a strong sense of responsibility, collaboration and purpose, he is creating an intelligent travel programme that actually energises employees and elevates business. Throughout our Business Travel : Reinvented episodes, he will explore next-gen travel policies, new T&E needs as well as effective process simplification together with senior product strategist and SAP Concur’s internal T&E tech advisor, Ralph Colunga.
