Unilever and HRG win Travel Team of the Year
In what was one of the most competitive awards ceremonies in recent years, Unilever and HRG won the title “Travel Team of the Year” at the prestigious Business Travel Awards 2018, held at London’s Marriott Grosvenor House Hotel.
The panel of awards judges cited, “The winning entry was an excellent example of multiple initiatives working towards a single purpose, thus making the programme more acceptable to both users and stakeholders. The exemplary outcome was not only in terms of financial benefit to the customer, but also the delivery of change.” They described the team as showing terrific collaboration on a global scale and was referred to as a best practice example of how to get it right.
Kem Boerrigter, Global Director Travel, Fleet & Event Services, Unilever commented, “We are all very proud, this is a wonderful achievement and the crowning glory for all our hard work implementing our travel programme. The collaboration between Unilever and HRG enables both teams to dovetail seamlessly while not losing their expertise in the relevant fields within the travel industry.”
Ian Windsor, Global Travel Services Director, HRG commented, “Everyone at HRG is over the moon and really proud to have the recognition. Together we have worked hard to ensure that the travel programme at Unilever is exemplary. Every traveller and their travel experience are important, and that journey can never be anything less than perfect, every time.”
“Equally as important has been the drive, desire and team collaboration to ensure the travel programme at Unilever has been achieved, plus continues to excel, meeting all targets set, which includes innovating technology and savings. This award truly endorses those objectives and celebrates our joint achievements. It’s a real pleasure to see our colleagues at both Unilever and HRG awarded this title.”
