dnata Travel Management introduces pioneering duty of care services to its corporate travellers in the Middle East

dnata Travel Management is partnering with International SOS to introduce its pioneering duty of care services to its hundreds of clients across the region. The ‘Travel Risk Management Program’ by International SOS is now available as an add-on service to dnata Travel Management’s regional client base. Organisations can benefit from International SOS’ comprehensive travel risk management programs, from assessing processes for travel risk management to mitigating any risks associated with travel. Companies will also have access to its 24/7 global assistance, medical and security evacuations, intelligence and monitoring tools, location-based alerts, and much more. Since 2019, dnata Travel Management surveys have consistently indicated that employee wellbeing and engagement are top priorities for corporate clients in the Middle East. Other priorities included savings and cost control, sustainability, and expense management.
Savio Vaz, Vice President Government and Corporate Travel at the dnata Travel Group, commented: “Our service requirements as a Travel Management Company (TMC) have grown significantly. The post-pandemic reopening of more countries and a growing preference for in-person meetings has fuelled a growth in corporate travel. Heads of businesses travelling across the region and beyond are ensuring now more than ever that employee wellbeing, engagement, and duty of care remain at the top of the agenda. We continue to evolve our offering to meet the needs of our corporate traveller base.”
Sebastien Bedu, General Manager Middle East at International SOS, added: “We are delighted to partner with dnata Travel Management and extend our robust preventive programmes to its corporate travel clients across the Middle East. Post-pandemic, the health and wellbeing of employees has become a business imperative and a top priority for the leadership agenda with a growing awareness around Duty of Care. At International SOS, we assist in ensuring the health and safety of employees while enabling organisations to focus on their core activities. Our teams of multilingual medical, security, and logistics experts are ready to assist anytime and anywhere.”
