Live Webinar

Cut Costs Not Corners: How Your Company Can Spend Less on Business Travel

Date: Tuesday, February 26, 2019
Time: 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm EST
When you're coming up with a corporate travel policy for your company, it's hard to balance the needs of the company with the needs of your team. If you set guidelines that are too strict, your employees either won’t follow them or will be unhappy while they are traveling, which could make them less productive. If you set guidelines that are too loose, your employees will overspend, causing you to be over budget. Neither of these scenarios is ideal.

Instead of going one way or another, consider finding a happy medium. Join Lola.com’s Director of Finance Alyson Connors and Travel Expert Shelby Byrnes for a webinar where you will learn:
  • What it takes to create an employee-and company-friendly travel policy
  • How to help your employees spend wisely, without sacrificing their travel experience
  • What kinds of hotel and flight bookings are the best for your budget and your travelers
  • Common mistakes travelers make when booking less expensive options
As an attendee, you’ll have access to a handout from Lola.com with more cost saving tips that you can bring back to your organization.
