Mission Vision Value – Business Travel

Mission Vision & Values!In every organization it is important to develop mission, vision, and values for strategic direction. Without the foundations of strong values illustrated by a vision to be undertaken by a mission, an organization cannot become an overly successful organization. This year in Business Travel we  introduced our Mission, Vision & Values.  Our mission statement defines our existence; our Vision statement describes our future whereas our Values helps us to define the type of team / organization we strive to be. Our mission, vision & value statement together offers insight into what our leader views as the primary purpose for being in the business. Mentioned below are the Mission, Vision & Values.

There is a Lot happening in BT2.0

Team Meets

Post the introduction of our Mission, Vision & Values it was time to create awareness about it among the teams. Team meets at various locations including the North, Mumbai, Chennai, Bangalore, Kolkata and PNQ were  conducted.  The BT2.0 team travelled across the country to connect with our employees – Thomas Cook, SOTC & TC Travel, and conveyed this point strongly. During these team meets all the employees were briefed, and we explained  why the Mission Statement was imperative for all of us. Also to add a little fun element, we added on a few games, and staff were rewarded with exciting gifts. Here’s a glimpse of these amazing team meets.

Year End Celebration – And it’s a wrap-up for 2018!


There’s a saying: “Doing things differently leads to something exceptional.” Always ready to follow this maxim,  Christmas was celebrated differently this time. It was a week-long celebration at Corporate Travel where all the employees (Pan India) cheerfully dressed in Christmas colours, solved the Christmas Crossword and participated in the snowman-making competition. Also, who doesn’t love a gift from Santa?  We all love it.  Secret Santa was organized team wise, Pan India, for all employees, where gifts were exchanged. Employees at Gurgaon and Mumbai were treated to the famous Christmas plum cakes, rounded off with a fun game of Housie. All enthusiastic teams, all eagerly waiting for the next few numbers, active participation and some lucky winners. This lotto game, and indeed, all the celebrations, were a great hit!

Change Management & Corporate On Boarding

BT2.0 introduced the concept of Change Management for one of our big corporate HCL. This helped us in its smooth implementation, making our customers aware of the change, and helping them to adapt to the change. We introduced Thomas Cook to them in different ways through E-Communication. To create a buzz we sent a few teasers – ‘watch this space for more’, countdown teasers, launch teasers  along with an introduction, best practices, FAQS, Travel desk contact details etc.

This has been followed by onsite branding like standees, cafeteria branding along with the Roadshow on the launch day. Thomas Cook certainly created a buzz while coming on board across the campuses.
