Skift Take

Business travel is evolving — slowly — to become more like consumer travel as companies start to take employee satisfaction more seriously.

For the next episode of our second season of the Skift Podcast, we’re getting down to business.

In 2016, business travel spending is expected to increase to $1.25 trillion. It’s a massive industry that’s going through big changes: Safety is a top concern because of world events, and even while companies want to control costs, surveys show they care more than ever about traveler satisfaction.

Helping us sort through what’s real, what’s hype and what’s important in business travel is Mike McCormick, Executive Director and COO of the Global Business Travel Association, and Evan Konwiser, VP Digital Traveler for American Express Global Business Travel.

The guests are joined by Skift Podcast host Hannah Sampson and news editor Dennis Schaal.
