TravelBoard GmbH - Competence center for mobility
Leverkusen-based TravelBoard GmbH is the Bayer Group’s competence center for business travel. The aim of TravelBoard’s global travel management is to “support Bayer’s business and employees with cost-efficient, convenient travel services and solutions.” The team continually analyzes developments in the dynamic travel market in order to manage the mobility services on offer. It combines a number of core competencies, such as the preparation of booking applications for the Group and the performance of business travel agency activities for Bayer employees.
TravelBoard GmbH is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Bayer Business Services and has around 80 employees. It has four separate pillars of activity. The first, global travel management, focuses on the strategic orientation of mobility services for Bayer and, as such, works closely with the Bayer country organizations and Procurement. The second pillar includes its activities as a business travel agency. The colleagues working in this area provide an important interface between travel management, bookings and travelers. Alongside traditional flight and train bookings, this team is also responsible for traveler support, complaint management and the procurement of visas.
The third pillar focuses on Bayer event and conference attendees and attends to their specific requirements.
TravelBoard GmbH also operates a private travel agency that is available to Bayer employees and external customers for planning and booking private trips. For more information about the private travel agency of TravelBoard GmbH, visit the homepage www.first-reisebuero.de/leverkusen1.
