LONDON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--beTravelwise, a new travel safety training specialist providing innovative, flexible, training for common health, security and travel issues and risks, faced by employees on business trips abroad, has launched today.
With a blended mix of eLearning, virtual classroom and traditional face-to-face training options, it is the first company to offer a course in personal travel risk mitigation strategy for the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) corporate audience.
beTravelwise promotes safe corporate travel practices, which comply with statutory Duty of Care for travelling employees. The cost effective training modules cover a variety of common risks business travellers face, which include: road traffic accidents; loss of items; diarrhoea and petty crime - all largely avoidable if considered in advance - as well as the rare, extreme scenarios such as terrorism and kidnapping.
beTravelwise Director Saul Shanagher comments: “There is a real need for organisations across the board to review their travel risk management programmes to ensure they provide the necessary level of training for all employees on overseas business. Our concise, blended approach provides practical, scalable, cost-effective training solutions suitable for all destinations, not just the high risk ones. Results from our training programme trials have had additional benefits too, including reduced travel stress levels and increased corporate travel productivity for employees.”
Cost-effective, flexible training options:
eLearning: provides engaging, concise courses that can be completed at the users convenience, wherever they are in the world, reducing costs associated with attending live training.
Virtual Classroom: convenient for organisations who have difficulty assembling employees in one location but still require interaction with a travel safety expert. It also allows a global network of consultants to deliver destination specific training.
Face to face training: ensures dedicated focus away from the noise and pressures of work. A physical group setting allows for constructive team building exercises and promotes employee interaction in a controlled environment.
The team behind beTravelwise has extensive market experience. Director Saul Shanagher was previously Global Head of Travel Security Training for International SOS, the world's leading assistance company. The company is a member of the International Gay & Lesbian Travel Association (IGLTA) and is a partner in the Government Foreign and Commonwealth Office initiative ‘Know Before You Go’ campaign https://www.gov.uk/knowbeforeyougo
