Simplifying travel post-merger for education provider
This global education provider is at the heart of education research and resources. Its expertise range from qualifications and academic publications to shaping curricula and education systems around the world.
Approximately 35% of its 6,700 internal staff travel for work, alongside thousands of external contractors. With operations in 170 countries, no trip is ever the same. Travel choices are often varied too, sometimes including accommodation such as farm stays in rural areas.
Michael Strange, Global Corporate Travel and Risk Manager, joined in January 2021. The education provider had just merged with another, and naturally that meant the merger of culture and processes, including the travel programme.
