Jack Alexander worked as a real estate executive for BCD Group founder John Fentener van Vlissingen before the pair purchased a travel company that ultimately led to the start of BCD Travel. “John walked into a meeting one day and said, ‘I want to enter the service industry,’” Alexander recalls of their 1986 discussion. Thirty-six years later, Alexander has been inducted into the Business Travel Hall of Fame for his contributions to the business travel landscape and his legacy of achievement in and out of the industry.

More than three-quarters of business travelers say their employer treats traveler health, safety and security as a priority, but only 36% of travelers say their employer unconditionally takes care of their safety and security when working remotely and another 25% don’t know, according to a BCD Travel survey in August. The survey of 674 business travelers worldwide examined travel risk management and the traveler experience, as well as a variety of measures that may improve the health, safety and security of business travelers on the road.
Travel smart. Travel well.
The travel industry is showing signs of slow but steady recovery. Business travelers are increasingly voicing their desire for human connection and face-to-face interactions. Travel teams are building or changing traveling policies to address the days’ top concerns: sustainability, people risk management, geopolitics, the need for adaptable digital solutions and more. All while they increase travelers’ confidence, take care of people and protect the company’s interests.
Resources and Content
The pandemic isn’t the only risk business travelers may face. Hurricanes, civil war, terrorism, and kidnapping are still real and present dangers. Travel is coming back; make sure you’re prepared with essential information for these times of uncertainty and change.
Know before you go
With travel risks and requirements seemingly changing by the minute, real-time information is a must-have for confident decision-making. That’s why we’ve created the COVID-19 Information Hub—a newly launched resource to help travelers and travel managers make smart, confident decisions in a constantly changing business travel landscape.
