Corporate travel managers wear a number of different hats in their mission to deliver optimal travel solutions to their teams. Each day is an intricate dance through a steady succession of multiple roles. At PJS, we take care of the complex logistics and cater to each client’s unique preferences so corporate travel managers can be rock stars at their jobs.

The multiple roles of a corporate travel manager include:
You cater to a variety of stakeholders at all levels of the enterprise with differing needs, and you need to satisfy all of them with diplomacy and grace.
Just when you think the day is going smoothly, you are hit with a number of fires to put out – changing itineraries, delayed flights, weather alerts, and shifting priorities.
You are vetting multiple options based on accessibility, cost, ROI, reliability, efficiency, schedules, and vendor relations to make the most cost-effective and strategic choices.
Even if other languages are not required, you use interpretation skills every day to navigate through a variety of travel acronyms, airport codes, and transportation jargon.
The Data Analyst
Your success is based on understanding and analyzing cost efficiencies and ROI of travel programs, analyzing successes and failures, and making data-based decisions.
Keep each of the above roles moving fluently in rotation while maintaining control over each and never dropping the ball.
