Travel program update

Message from Christopher Raduly, Category Manager, Travel

As you may be aware, we launched a new travel management program with Corporate Travel Management (CTM) at the end of last year. Over the last 12-months, we’ve been working with the CTM team to optimise and refine their system and tools to provide an optimal user experience.  We have been receiving your feedback and recognise that there are further improvements to be made to the travel program.
