With the unprecedented problems associated in the area The Business Travel Association (BTA) is introducing “BTA Cares” – an initiative designed to support members of the business travel community who have been furloughed or made redundant as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic.
August is being dedicated as ‘BTA Cares Month’. It will be an ongoing and constantly updated project, offering a schedule of activities including: webinars, master classes and social events.
The scheme will include bespoke advice and coaching sessions from top industry leaders to strengthen CV and job search techniques, along with mental health sessions, accessible yoga and informal discussion groups to stay connected.
The plan is to help upskill, market and retrain members of the business travel community to create employees who are attractive to both the travel industry and wider sectors. It will give employers a key place to point those who have been made redundant for practical and informative advice, and to help those former employees to seek new roles.
Clive Wratten, CEO of the BTA said: “The BTA Cares programme will throw its arms around business travel professionals when they need it the most. As we navigate a sustainable way out of the Covid-19 crisis, this initiative is the first step towards building a stronger community and extending a helping hand.”
