Post-pandemic Business Travel Considerations


The Coronavirus pandemic has taken a toll on the travel industry with an estimated negative impact of $46.6 billion dollars per month. Businesses have eliminated nearly all travel to protect their employees. As the country moves towards reopening, companies should begin to plan what business travel will look like post pandemic.
