While different crucible events broadened the concept of duty of care since it entered mainstream management over a decade ago, Covid-19 not only disrupted global mobility but also brought new challenges for employers in mitigating the health, safety and security risks of their workforce.

Please join OBTA and Lisbeth Claus as we explore the ‘Covid effect’ on business travel, link it to employer duty of care, extrapolate different future global mobility scenarios for business travel management, and explore how the business travel industry can contribute to the duty of care value chain.
