GBTA Foundation Launches New Travel Risk Management Assessment Tool

The GBTA Foundation – the education and research arm of the Global Business Travel Association – announced the launch of the new Travel Risk Management Maturity Model (TRM3™) Self-Assessment Tool. The update to the TRM3 tool was created in partnership with iJET International due to a special task force of GBTA members and industry experts. The new tool is a major update over the current TRM3 tool in place and now assesses each key performance area of a travel risk management program in greater detail and also provides specific recommendations to help companies take their program to the next level. The TRM3 can help guide efficient, effective improvement across multiple process disciplines within an organization – legal, HR, travel, safety, security and business continuity. The self-assessment tool looks at the following nine categories: policies and procedures, education and training, risk assessment, risk disclosure, risk monitoring, response and recovery, notification, data management and program communication. Based on the answers, it rates program from 'Level 1' defined as reactive up to 'Level 5,' which is defined as optimized indicating that the travel risk program is integrated throughout the organization.
